COO of RevoluSun
Honolulu-based RevoluSun is one of the largest solar energy companies in Hawaii. It sells solar photovoltaic systems as well as other products for Hawaii homes.
Colin Yost, chief operating officer of RevoluSun, says the company has evolved with the industry.
“We are doing the implementation of economic and sustainability for our business,” he said. “We are in the process of making net-zero houses, take care of energy needs, waste needs. If we could build residences here in Hawaii that can survive hurricanes, food shortages, water shortages, that will help us to be more resilient.”
To that end, RevoluSun is moving its business aggressively away from depending on the utility’s grid.
“We want to try to get half of our revenue that doesn’t require utility approval, by making homes more livable,” Yost said.
“Cleaner, smarter, solar used to be our motto, but now it’s cleaner, smarter, living. This includes better air circulation, more efficient, resilient types of products. It has created this wonderful sense of sustainability within our employees.”
