Seagull Schools joins a growing list of Hawaii businesses and organizations to go solar before the end of the year.
The non-profit childcare provider expects to save more than $63,000 in annual energy costs through its new solar photovoltaic (PV) systems at its Ewa, Kapolei and Ko Olina campuses.
RevoluSun installed the three new systems, which are expected to cut the school's overall electric bill by about one-third.
Seagull Schools agreed to a leasing program which allowed it to install the solar PV systems without upfront costs.
The solar PV systems are expected to offset about 7.5 million pounds of carbon dioxide from being released into the environment during its lifetime.
