Some Hawaii solar energy firms are turning to offering other products and services as they wait to connect rooftop systems to Hawaiian Electric Co.’s grid.
Honolulu-based RevoluSun, one of the state’s largest solar photovoltaic companies, is an example.
Some of the products that RevoluSun offers, which was on display at the most recent Building Industry Association of Hawaii show.
The company, which recently opened a new office and showroom in former Bank of Hawaii space off Ward Avenue in Honolulu, has changed its motto from cleaner, smarter solar to cleaner, smarter living, becoming a one-stop shop for sustainable home technology.
Its offerings include Sun Bandit solar water heaters that utilize PV technology; QuietCool Whole House Fans, which provide energy-efficient ventilation and cooling; Velux natural lighting that brings daylight into interior spaces and improves indoor air quality; Clipper Creek EV charging stations; advanced home automation and security systems; and IntelliFlo variable speed pumps for pools.
“What RevoluSun is about is creating not just an energy-efficient home but one that’s healthy and comfortable to live in,” Dave Gorman, general manager of RevoluSun Smart Home, told PBN. “Our vision is to do more for our customers, and this will make our customers’ homes a 21st century sanctuary.”
RevoluSun, which has approximately 45 employees, has a backlog of about 400 PV systems waiting to be connected to Hawaiian Electric Co.’s grid.
