Tesla helps some Hawaii schools beat the heat with its Powerwall systems

Hawaiian schools have been dealing with cooling issues and Tesla is helping some schools better their situation. According to a report from Roadshow, Tesla shipped some 300 batteries and solar panels to Hawaii as a way of helping the schools stay cool using renewable energy. This occurred after state government challenged the local department of education to cool an additional 1,000 classrooms without increasing electricity usage.

Previously, Tesla shipped Powerwall batteries to Puerto Rico last fall, as well as sending some to Australia in December as well. Now the company is helping Hawaii with its school cooling situation.

Mind you, this isn’t the first time Tesla has provided help to mitigate Hawaii’s energy problem. Tesla already has a network of solar panels and batteries that keep Kua’i lit up at night, for example.

Late January, Governor Ige announced that their original 1,000-classroom goal has already been passed. For good news, he added that over 1,200 rooms had sustainability powered air conditioning. Last September, Pacific Solar had installed 955 solar panels as well as eight power inverters at public charter school, Oauhu’s Kamaile Academy.
