REC Solar has completed a solar installation for the Kapolei Inline Hockey Arenas on Oahu.

The twin hockey arenas are now powered by two systems that can produce more than 400,000 kilowatt-hours and offset approximately 80 percent of the Kapolei Inline Hockey Arenaâ¿¿s daily energy consumption. This reduction is equivalent to offsetting 287 metric tons of CO2, or the annual greenhouse gas emissions from 55 passenger vehicles, according to REC Solarâ¿¿s prepared statement Wednesday.

This recent roof-mounted project â¿¿ cost of which was not immediately known â¿¿ adds to the Hawaii portfolio for REC Solar, which also includes four Costco Warehouses, four at Tony Auto Group facilities, two at Longs Drugs stores and systems at Kauai Community College.

REC Solar is a solar power provider specializing in grid-tied residential and commercial installations. It has offices in California, Colorado, Hawaii, Oregon, Arizona and New Jersey.
