Green Jobs: Hawaii Relies More on Biomass than Solar

Looking for green jobs in Hawaii? Don’t look to the sun! Solar power doesn’t even rank in the top three renewable resources in The Aloha State. Instead, look for jobs in biomass, which produces a full 4 percent of Hawaii’s green energy, followed by wind and geothermal. PV comes in fourth.

Northern Power 100 Turbine Powers Innovative Microgrid in Hawaii

Northern Power 100 Turbine Powers Innovative Microgrid in Hawaii

Several farmers in North Kohala, Hawaii, are now benefitting from an innovative off-grid water-pumping system powered by a Northern Power NPS 100 wind turbine. Like many others in remote locations and island communities, North Kohala farmers have been searching for an alternative to using polluting, expensive diesel fuel to generate electricity. This microgrid project, known as SkyGrid Energy, marks the growing trend of turning to affordable, clean, renewable wind energy as the solution. The NPS 100 wind turbine is specifically designed to support microgrids with its sophisticated voltage controls and no inrush current, thereby relieving stress to the system.
