Conergy has broken new ground by completing work on its maiden North American solar installation in Hawaii. The 320kW system is housed on the roof of Fujifilm’s regional office in Oahu and was developed in partnership with local developer 21st Century.
With 1,455 modules and an annual electricity-generation capacity of around 483,391 kWh, the system is one of the 10 largest PV systems on the island and the first of several Conergy and 21st Century plan to collaborate on. “The Fujifilm project is just the beginning – together with Conergy, we are already looking forward to making the island even greener in the future,” 21st Century’s CEO, Myron Thomson, said.
“Hawaii is already a solar champion and will expand further in this area. By 2030, Hawaii wants to cover 70% of the island’s energy requirements with renewable energy sources. Due to harsh weather conditions, quality and durability also play a major role on the island,” added Conergy’s account manager for Hawaii, Carl Campagna.
