When we think solar power, we can’t imagine a place more perfectly suited for it than Maui. After all, “Valley Isle” is home to Mount Haleakalā, a volcano that legend tells is lassoed to the sun. This sounds like solar panel paradise to us.
However, there’s also a dark force at work on the island wreaking havoc on homeowners wallets. We’re talking about the notoriously high-cost of electricity in Hawaii, which is over twice the national average.1 In fact, Hawaii has the highest electricity prices in the country.2 But don’t despair, Sunrun is here to help.
