Students at Hawaii's Waialua High and Intermediate are returning to school this year to solar PV and energy storage-pow- ered air conditioned classrooms from project partners SimpliPhi Power, Ameresco and Haleakala Solar. As part of the statewide Heat Abatement Program, schools can receive hybrid solar air con- ditioning units and implement other cooling strategies to bring relief to stu- dents currently enduring sweltering edu- cational environments that can reach up to 100 degrees and make learning a chal- lenge. The solution of classroom AC powered by solar and energy storage helps to control rising energy costs for schools, which until now has been a major barrier to adding AC to class- rooms.
