New on-site solar in Hawaii

DuPont has completed the installation of an on-site solar PV facility at its Pioneer Hi-Bred Waimea Research Center in Kauai, Hawaii.

Comprised of 1500 Evergreen Solar modules and installed by REC Solar, the 0.33 ha array is capable of generating about 85% of the energy needs of the research facility.

It is expected to generate something over 706 MWh annually, saving Pioneer about US$200,000 per year in avoided purchased electricity costs.
