SolarWorld’s Solar Panels Installed on Key Buildings of Pearl Harbor Naval Base

The U.S. Navy base at Pearl Harbor, now called as Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, located at Oahu, Hawaii, will generate 3.4 GW of clean energy every year by utilizing 2.4 MW of SolarWorld solar panels installed over the roofs of the buildings.

Solar Installation at Naval Base

DRI Energy, a California-based company, provided engineering, procurement and commissioning services to complete the installation over the crown five buildings under an accord with Niking, a Hawaii-based company.

The installation, completed with an investment of $15 million, had received grants under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. The solar project will assist the U.S. Military base to reduce its energy dependence by using the clean energy generated by the panels. SolarWorld had delivered the crystalline silicon solar PV panels for the installation from its production facilities in Camarillo, California and Hillsboro, Oregon. The power produced from the installations is enough to provide electricity to around 440 homes.

Although the installation of solar panels has been completed, final configurations of related electrical systems are underway and systems’ commissioning is anticipated after the coming fall.
