California-based REC Solar has begun offering installations of residential solar photovoltaic systems on Oahu.
The company until now had focused on commercial and utility-scale PV installations in Hawaii.
REC Solar recently expanded its facility in Kapolei and is hiring a local team to manage residential business operations and system installation on Oahu, the company said in a news release.
“This Oahu expansion provides a strategic base for REC Solar to meet increased demand from homeowners as well as corporate, agricultural, government and utility customers,” according to the news release.
The company has completed about 7 megawatts of commercial and government PV projects 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.
