The solar power boom may have initiated a decade ago, but never has it developed as quickly as it has now. One local company, Hi-Power Solar, makes the process simple and consistent, offering quality products at a fair price.
Founded by Ron Romero in 2010, Hi-Power Solar has continued to build and expand into countless homes around Hawaii. Cruz Romero, general manager and Ron’s son, mentioned that his dad “has been doing this since 1981” and has seen the family-owned company grow fast since it started very small just three years ago.
Hi-Power Solar prides itself on being one of the only local solar power companies with access and authorization to sell from most major manufacturers. Panels offered include SunPower, Mitsubishi, Panasonic Photovoltaic, LG, Solar World, Hyundai, and Conergy. While some of these companies may not be household names, there are many reasons to consider them over the better-known ones. “We look at clients to give them the best option possible,” said Cruz. “It makes clients happy. We can customize to what the customer wants, instead of trying to push a product.”
Many possible consumers worry over the process of transitioning into solar power may be a convoluted one, but Hi-Power Solar breaks it down into five easy-to-follow steps.
Step one covers design, in which the team and prospective consumer meet to analyze current electrical usage, in order to construct an ideal plan. This step looks at cost, efficiency, current and future usage, and location. In step two, Hi-Power Solar submits all applications and forms for approval. Step three is the installation. The consumer receives a timeframe with an estimate on when their system will be installed, usually between one to five days, dependent on system size. Step four is support, where a consultant goes over the monitoring process of the system and help set up an online account for easy monitoring. The concluding step is ‘the final touch.’ Once everything is set up, Hi-Power Solar follows up to make sure everything is up and running efficiently.
As a full-service contractor, Hi-Power Solar offers sales and service for solar water heaters as well as PV systems.
With a team ranging from technicians and installers to consultants and monitoring specialists, Hi-Power Solar offers an excellent balance of first-class panels, professional installation, and economical pricing.
