Renewable Energy Generation by Campus
The University of Hawai’i is committed to being a leader in renewable energy and has a goal to become net-zero energy by 2035, exceeding and in full support of the State’s goals to be 100% renewable by 2045. Our first rooftop system was built on the PB-11 in 2009, about 10.4KW at the University of Hilo campus of the Big Island. Since then we have grown by 14,000% generating over 14 million kWh/yr, which is enough to power over 1,500 homes for a full year! Our PV systems include: rooftop installations, parking shade structures and ground mount arrays. These projects are built through a portfolio of funding sources including capital procurements and PPAs.
Peruse our portfolio of PV systems at each of our 10 campuses across the Hawaiian Islands.
