Hawaii Energy Connection, the local company known by the household name “KumuKit™,” has surpassed big mainland companies and has already been installing its KumuKit™ PV systems with battery storage here in the state.

As the pioneers of the first utility-approved, A/C-coupled PV battery storage system, Hawaii Energy Connection’s KumuKit™ PV systems are available today, and it has the “fast pass” to get your system approved and installed quickly.


The company’s battery storage system is called the “KumuKit Powerblocks™” because of its modular design and how it allows for easy upgrade and incremental expansion to match your needs and solar PV production. It is designed to be simple, monitored and controlled by you, with their proprietary energy management controller.

KumuKit Powerblocks™ makes sense for homeowners by providing the capacity to store the less-expensive electricity your PV system generates during the day for use during peak periods, when power demand and cost are highest, typically in the evening when everyone comes home and begins cooking dinner, taking showers, washing and drying clothes, etc.

Additionally, in the case of a power outage, the battery system can provide critical load emergency backup to the home. Critical loads, such as lighting, medical equipment, refrigerator, and television and radio, are important to your family in times of emergency to keep them going without missing a beat, especially during hurricane season.


The already-proven KumuKit Powerblocks™ battery storage system is readily available and can start your savings on electricity right away. Remember to take advantage of the still available state and federal tax credits (up to 65 percent) and its financing options that make it easy to own.

A great feature of the innovative KumuKit Powerblocks™ is that it connects to new and existing PV systems, and it works together with your solar panels and household electrical devices to create a complete home energy management system. By combining solar and batteries with smart software, KumuKit’s™ inclusive home energy management system can analyze your home’s energy consumption trends to develop efficiency recommendations that not only limit energy demand, but also define the exact combination of stored and renewable energy required to power the home.

Take charge of the solar power you generate. In light of all the changes imposed by utilities and regulatory agencies, this transformational storage technology gives consumers more choices and control in their efforts to save money while using renewable energy.
