Pacific Islands Solar believes that home and business energy needs can be reduced first, prior to determining the size of a PV system. Using energy-efficient LCD light bulbs to replace existing CFL light bulbs is one component of saving. Making hot water through a solar thermal or hybrid system like Fire & Ice is another vehicle to lowering energy usage.

The company’s trained representatives can help you examine what is the best way to lower your energy usage prior to designing a PV system to meet those needs. If the energy needed is reduced, the size of your PV system is smaller, saving you additional dollars.

Pacific Islands Solar introduced a new product to Hawaii called Fire & Ice. Fire & Ice produces hot water by using the heat generated by your air conditioner, as well as one solar panel on your roof, to produce all of your hot water needs.

What is exciting about the product is that the technology reduces the electrical load on the A/C system, giving electrical savings for both hot water and A/C electrical consumption. Fire & Ice utilizes proven technology of heat transfer systems of both solar thermal technology and heat recovery unit technology (HRU).

Also exciting is the cost, which is about the same as a traditional solar hot water system, allowing anyone who has a need for both to benefit from this technology. The patent pending technology provides multiple benefits including hot water production during daytime and nighttime hours, as well as a significant increase in mechanical equipment efficiency. Overall, Fire & Ice touts an excellent ROI (Return on Investment) in the renewable energy arena.

LED light bulbs use significantly less energy to light a home or business. LED lighting received a bad rap due to its more expensive cost and poor quality construction, initially. Pacific Islands Solar has aligned itself with a quality manufacturer that has lowered cost without lowering quality. Anytime you can install a light bulb that will last for 10 years and use less energy, that amounts to great savings on cost and kWh usage.

Pacific Islands Solar believes that consumers need to know about the quality of the solar module they are considering prior to purchasing, since the life expectancy and power output depreciation need to be taken into account. The company believes that Kyocera, a Japanese solar manufacturer, produces the best quality module for Hawaii’s environment, with the least amount of depreciation of energy output.

A recent study performed on the leading manufacturers by GTM Research, a respected industry group, covered six critical areas for module performance. Kyocera was the only company that excelled in all six, confirming what Pacific Islands Solar has been telling its customers — that Kyocera’s quality is unmatched. Kyocera is one of only five manufacturers that have passed level six salt-mist testing, which is certainly a concern here in Hawaii.

Due to low cost/quality Chinese manufacturers, financial pressures have caused quality issues, as manufacturers have struggled to construct a competitive product. Kyocera proves by the GTM Research study, to have not gone this route, and you can rest assured that its product provides years of service.

Pacific Islands Solars’ goal is to provide the best energy solutions. The company believes that to do this, it must use the best made products along with installing these products with quality installation in mind.

Along with the Fire & Ice system, it also installs Kyocera solar modules for PV systems. Since the company is also a general contractor and roofing contractor, it has the expertise to ensure that its installations are leak-free and have excellent construction.
