Trane is collaborating with the Roman Catholic Church’s Diocese of Honolulu and Sunforce Solutions International (SFSI), a global provider of fully integrated, third-party, decentralized solar power solutions for a solar projecct. The collaboration will involve implementing solar roof solutions totaling over 1.15 megawatts  in nine parishes on the islands of Oahu and Maui: Co-Cathedral of St. Theresa – Honolulu; St. Joseph – Waipahu; Star of the Sea– Kahala; St.Anthony – Kailua; St. John the Baptist – Kalihi; Maria Lanakila – Lahaina; Christ the King – Kahului; St. Theresa – Kihei; St. Anthony – Wailuku.
Diocese leaders anticipate that the alternative energy solutions will meet 80% of future electrical needs, significantly reducing energy costs. Improvements were needed to replace aging infrastructure and lower energy costs for the parishes. The renewable energy solution also reflects church leaders’ commitment to careful stewardship of the earth’s resources.
