REC Solar partners with Sunrun to expand residential solar solutions to Hawaii

By Editor


Greentech Lead America: REC Solar, a company specializing in solar electric system design and installation, has expanded to Hawaii market.

The solar company has formed partnership with Sunrun, a home solar provider in Hawaii, to offer residential solar solutions on the island of O’ahu.

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.”

Recently an SEIA report projected 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.

Recently REC Solar also expanded to New York State to deliver solar solutions to residents across the state, with an initial focus on Westchester, Rockland, Putnam and Orange Counties.
