Recently, the utility raised concerns about grid penetration, stability and safety. These concerns have slowed solar installations until the situation can be fully studied, leaving the path forward in question.

Many companies saw a problem and gave up on solar, but locally owned, nationally recognized Hawaii Energy Connection LLC decided to be part of the solution instead. After listening to discussions about what couldn’t be done, the company decided to imagine, research and implement what could be done to meet the needs of two very diverse groups — homeowners who want rooftop solar, and a utility concerned with the grid.

Hawaii Energy Connection LLC continues to lead the movement. The company’s goal has always been simple: to provide affordable energy solutions that promote and accelerate the adoption of clean, renewable energy. For homeowners, the company’s popular KumuKit™ PV systems are uniquely engineered to achieve peak energy production, maximize available incentives and ultimately shrink electricity bills. In addition, Hawaii Energy Connection LLC has the next-generation technology in water heating with its KumuKit™ PV Solar Water Heating System. If you are unable to get PV installed at this time, this may be the option to get you started with solar, and to start saving money immediately.


While KumuKit™ systems have always been designed for optimized energy production, Hawaii Energy Connection LLC just launched its next-generation PV system, KumuKit™ 2.0, now employing the latest technologies to optimize energy usage with Smart Energy Management. KumuKit™ 2.0, with optional Smart Storage, is a grid-wise solution that has the ability to deliver smooth, stable energy to the grid, help you store and utilize the solar energy produced more effectively and even can provide an emergency power source.

Smart Energy Management has the ability to leverage a PV system’s production to your advantage by automatically optimizing energy generation, usage and export. Simple and automated control of your energy means you can take advantage of all utility and grid support benefits, and adapt to changing solar energy policies. Modular in design and scalable, optional Smart Storage increases your PV system’s effectiveness by allowing both smart energy export, or non-export/self-consumption between specific times each day. Additional benefits include emergency backup for lighting, medical equipment and refrigeration.

The company will work with you to design a customized KumuKit™ 2.0 system that is ideal for your home and budget, and will handle the coordination of your interconnection paperwork with the utility. As soon as the utility approves your interconnection, the company will schedule your installation. Interconnection approvals take longer than they used to, since a study may be required to make sure your system can be safely connected to the grid.
