The Maui News, December 3, 2009 News: “Solar panels electrifying”

Solar panels cover a section of the Cameron Center’s roof while project officials give a tour after Wednesday’s blessing ceremony.

Mayor Charmaine Tavares and Council Member Mike Victorino listen as lead project engineer Charles Chacko describes how the photovoltaic inverter transforms DC power from solar panels to AC current for use at the Cameron Center.  “It’s like the brain and heart of the system,” Chacko said.  The solar system installed by GreenPath Tehcnologies Inc. includes 480 high-efficiency solar modules covering more than 12,000 square feet on the center’s roof.  The system is expected to provide 25 percent of the building’s electrical needs.
