The Basis of Our Commitment
PV produces clean, reliable, firm power.
PV production is during daylight hours.
Maui Electric Company system demand during peak and off-peak
hours is capable of integrating PV power.
Delivery of PV power to the Maui Electric system during peak and
off-peak hours requires mutual understanding, collaboration and
PV power will be a major part of transitioning to renewable energy.
