Hoku Solar and Tioga Energy have unveiled a new solar energy project for the Keauhou Shopping Center in Hawaii.

Comprising solar electric systems installed on seven buildings in the shopping center, the 376 kW system is one of the largest commercial solar electric projects on Hawaii island. The Keauhou Shopping Center - owned by Kamehameha Schools - will now receive a significant portion of its electricity from on-site solar energy generation.

Tioga developed, financed, owns, operates and maintains the systems and will sell the generated solar electricity to Kamehameha Schools. The systems were built by Honolulu-based Hoku Solar, a wholly owned subsidiary of Hoku Corp.
