University of Hawai‘i Maui College Achieves Net-Zero Goal

The next virtually net-zero University of Hawai‘i campus is up and running. Through a combination of solar photovoltaic energy, distributed energy storage and energy efficiency measures, UH Maui College has reduced the campus’ use of fossil fuel for energy by an estimated 100%.

More than 3,300 photovoltaic (PV) modules were installed, generating 1.58 MW of power, enough to power more than 200 homes annually and offsetting greenhouse gas emissions equal to 4,400 barrels of oil a year.  The project also includes 13.93 MWh of battery storage.
