Sun Power for Schools

Kaleiopuu Elementary School

On September 7, 2012 Kaleiopuu Elementary School became the thirty-fifth school (twentieth on Oahu) to receive a rooftop solar system from the Sun Power for Schools program.  The system, comprised of nine, 245 watt, monocrystalline Suntech solar modules, produces a maximum total output of 2.1 kilowatts.  Combined with a sensor box to measure ambient and panel temperature, irradiance, and wind speed, Kaleiopuu Elementary's system collects a variety of information through its data acquisition system (DAS).
