REC Solar, a company known for its grid connected residential and commercial installations, has completed its solar power installation project at the Kapolei Inline Hockey stadiums in Oahu in the Hawaiian Islands.
REC Solar has installed two Xantrex 100 kW inverters and 1,170 REC 220 watt modules to produce a total 400,000 kWh electric power for the use of the stadiums. The produced power meets nearly 80% of the total power requirement of the two hockey stadiums thus offsetting around 287 metric tons of carbon dioxide that is equivalent to the gas emissions from 55 passenger vehicles annually.
The Inline Hockey stadiums owned by Richard Pentecost a local business man praised the work performed by REC Solar and said, the work was completed as scheduled without deviation and the new facility will aid the local community to learn inline hockey and practice it. He said the new facility will perk up the earning potential of the stadium and allow the locals as well as outsiders to conduct tournaments.
Drew Bradley, REC Solar’s regional manager for Hawaii detailed REC’s commitment to provide cost effective solar solutions for high priced electric power used by the business community in Hawaii. He explained how the company enables the smart business companies to take advantage of the 30% federal cash grants, 35% state tax credit of Hawaii or a competitive 24.5% Hawaii State refundable tax credit and reduce the power costs.
Angiolo Laviziano CEO of REC Solar commented that solar energy reduces the reliance on oil energy all over the world and REC Solar is committed to saving the customers from inflated power bills and expedites the process of early switch to the use of renewable energy sources.
