Haleakala Solar Provides Jobs and Clean Energy To Hawaii
Solar Power World, the leading online and print resource for news and information regarding solar installation, solar development and solar technology, has recognized Haleakala Solar as one of North America’s top solar contractors… in fact, Haleakala Solar came in at 95 out of 500 solar companies in the U.S. and number ONE in the state of Hawaii.
The Top 500 Solar Contractors List of Solar Power World magazine was developed to recognize the work completed by solar contractors across the U.S. and Canada. These companies are helping to grow the economy, provide employment, and offer a choice to electricity customers on how to get their power. “The companies on this year’s list exude solar-business brilliance, and they deserve to be recognized not only for being great companies but also for how their work positively impacts the environment,” said Kathie Zipp, managing editor of Solar Power World.
Haleakala Solar employs well over 160 workers, and has installed over 14,000 solar energy systems in its 40 year history. When the company started in 1977, it grew from a one-man operation installing solar hot water systems, to offering services in a vast array of solar services — solar photovoltaic, energy storage systems (a.k.a. batteries), energy management as well as solar hot water — for residential and also large commercial projects.
