REC Solar Expands Residential Solutions to Hawaii

National solar installer one of the first to help O'ahu homeowners go solar with no money down

KAPOLEI, Hawaii--REC Solar, a national leader in solar electric system design and installation, now offers turnkey residential solar solutions on the island of O'ahu. Thanks to REC Solar's partnership with Sunrun, the nation's leading home solar company, Hawaii residents can now go solar without high upfront cost and lock in low energy rates for 20 years while slashing their electric bill from day one.


This expansion builds on REC Solar's considerable success in the state's commercial and utility solar markets to address one of the fastest-growing residential solar markets in the nation. Recently, the company expanded its facility in Kapolei and is hiring a dedicated local team to manage residential business operations and system installation on the island.

"Hawaii's homeowners face some of the highest electricity costs in the country," said John Bumgarner, Regional Sales Manager for REC Solar. "REC Solar brings Hawaii residents relief with lower costs, efficiencies and expertise gained over more than 15 years in business and 9,000 solar systems installed. With this expansion in O'ahu, homeowners can take advantage of abundant sunshine and reduce their energy bill right now with clean, affordable solar energy."

A recent SEIA report projects that Hawaii will become the second-largest residential solar state in 2013. This O'ahu expansion provides a strategic base for REC Solar to meet increased demand from homeowners as well as corporate, agricultural, government and utility customers. The company has completed over seven megawatts for commercial and government clients in Hawaii, and is slated to begin construction soon on one of the largest solar projects approved in the state—the 14.5 megawatt Anahola project for Kauai Island Utility Cooperative.
