College among first with 100 percent renewable energy generated on-site
The University of Hawai‘i Maui College is partnering with Johnson Controls to combine solar power with battery distributed energy storage. Additional installations at other campuses will save the system $79M over 20 years.
In 2015, Hawai’i became the first state to commit to achieving 100 percent renewable energy by 2045. And the University of Hawai’i is leading the way, in a far-reaching partnership with Johnson Controls.
By 2019, the UH Maui College campus will be capable of generating 100 percent of its energy on-site, through solar photovoltaic systems coupled with battery distributed energy storage. Four UH community college campuses will also use Johnson Controls solutions to significantly reduce their fossil fuel consumption.
