Case Study: Country Club Village - A Double Solar Triumph in Honolulu, HI


At the picturesque location of 3075 Ala Poha Place in Honolulu, Hawaii, an extraordinary solar project has come to life. In 2016, Adroit Energy Inc. undertook the task of installing not one but two pioneering Solar Hot Water Systems at the Country Club Village. This $1.5 million project spanned two high-rise condominium buildings, rising to 21 and 22 stories, with an astonishingly swift completion time of just 6 weeks.

Setting a Strictly Solar Standard:

In a remarkable commitment to sustainability, both Solar Hot Water Systems installed at the Country Club Village condos in Honolulu, Hawaii, employ Haase solar thermal storage tanks connected to six high-efficiency condensing tankless water heaters, each boasting a capacity of 199,000 Btu/hr. The system was designed to include 360 gallons of backup storage capacity, featuring two 119-gallon Solar Mixing Tanks for added efficiency. A robust monitoring and control system, with sixteen data points on each building, ensures ongoing performance oversight for years to come.
