Commercial Solar in Hawai’i

REC Solar has been Hawai’i’s premier commercial solar provider since 2007. We specialize in financing and developing customized onsite solar, microgrids and energy storage systems for businesses, municipalities and schools in Oahu, Maui, Big Island, Kauai and more. 


With more than 120 projects completed (and counting!) in Hawai’i, we’re the long-term renewable energy provider your business can trust to help save on energy costs while achieving sustainability and energy resiliency goals.

Lower energy costs

Hawai’i has the highest electricity rate in the nation, likely making your organization’s utility bill one of its highest expenses. Our in-house solar experts will design a customized onsite solar and energy storage system to help your business significantly lower energy costs and eliminate expensive peak demand charges. 

Power through energy disruptions

We specialize in designing and developing solar projects that protect the reliability of your operations. We’ll pair the sustainability of onsite solar with the reliability of a microgrid, giving your organization a secure energy infrastructure that can help you power through energy disruptions and natural disasters.  

Achieve sustainability goals

Hawai’i has a centuries-long legacy of environmental preservation and a robust statewide sustainability and strategic climate action plan. Our customized onsite solar and storage systems will help ensure your organization aligns with these goals and principles while meeting growing demand for eco-friendly practices.  


Having completed 120+ successful projects in Hawai’i, our customers know they can depend on us for end-to-end commercial solar services. From consulting, financing and design to long-term operations and maintenance, we’re the commercial solar energy developer you can rely on for the long run.


As a full-service solar provider, our commitment to you is simple: We’re here to provide end-to-end support for your solar project’s life cycle. 

From expert design and no-capital-required power purchase agreement financing to long-term operations and maintenance, enjoy the high-quality solutions, seamless experience and solar expertise that only REC Solar can provide.


Drawing upon our 25+ years of expertise in solar, we start by evaluating your site, sustainability goals and business needs to determine the solar and storage option that best fits your needs 


We’ll finance your solar project as a power purchase agreement (PPA), shifting your investment from a costly capital expenditure to a predictable monthly operating expense with budget protection from future electricity rate increases.  


Our expert solar design team will create a high-quality solar solution customized to your business’ space and energy needs. And our project management team will serve as your point of contact throughout the installation, ensuring construction teams adhere to REC Solar’s high standards of quality, not the industry’s baseline.  


We remain committed to owning, operating, maintaining and monitoring your solar over the life of your contract, ensuring maximum optimization and performance for years to come.
