The project was sighted on 5 acres of non-productive agricultural land and located above old Kapaa Town on the windward side of Kauai. This 1.21 MW ground mounted photovoltaic system is the largest of its kind in the state of Hawaii and the first installation to occur in Kauai. The solar power plant was designed with four 250 kW Advanced Energy Solaron Inverters and is powered by 5,376 REC Group 225 watt Peak Energy (PE)-Series modules. This large ground mount is part of a long process to reach 50% efficiency of renewable resources on the island of Kauai.
