Royal Lahaina Resort & Bungalows’ solar PV project was built in two phases, completed in 2020 and 2022, respectively. In the first phase, 628 solar panels generating 226 kWh of electricity were installed on the rooftops of existing hotel buildings. In the second phase, 1,492 solar panels generating 656 kWh of electricity were installed as a cantilevered solar carport. Project financing qualified for federal and Hawaii state tax credits and incentives for a return on investment in 2.6 years. The 882kW DC cumulative total of the 2,120 solar modules on the property will produce an estimated 1,416,930 kWh annually. When converted to a carbon offset via the U.S EPA greenhouse gas equivalencies calculator, the property is saving an estimated 977,058,251 kg of C02 emissions from the environment. This is the equivalent of planting 16,578 trees.
