Innovative Ways to Reduce Costs on Manufacturing in Hawaii

Cummins, the global power leader and manufacturer of engines and power generation systems, has found a way to reduce their carbon footprint and incorporate sustainable practices into their business strategy by utilizing Direct Current (DC) heat pump technology from Adon Renewables (A Hawaii based microgrid technology firm).  

 

To meet Cummins‘ 2020 environmental goals and to reduce energy use and greenhouse gases (GHGs), Cummins collaborated with Adon Renewables to reduce 50% of their Kapolei facility’s total energy consumption by installing Adon’s SunChillers™ hybrid, multi-zone solar heat pumps.  SunChillers™ utilize direct current based technology: powered by PV modules and rectified power (AC to DC) from the centralized power grid.  SunChillers™ have been installed in commercial businesses, resorts, and multi-unit residential buildings throughout the state since 2017. 

Direct Current (DC) technology at Turtle Bay Resort

 

 

The world-renown North Shore resort, Turtle Bay Resort (TBR), has found a way to reduce their carbon footprint and incorporate sustainable practices into their business strategy by utilizing Direct Current (DC) technology to reduce their operation costs on one of the most expensive part of their utility bills, the cooling system.

TBR collaborated with Adon Renewables, a local microgrid developer, to reduce up to 90% of their energy consumption on cooling by installing Adon’s SunChillers™ hybrid multi-zone solar air conditioners in all their cottages. The SunChillers™ are direct current based technology which are powered by PV modules and batteries directly without needing to invert power from direct current to alternating current from the power grid. Many SunChillers™ have been installed in commercial and multi-unit buildings throughout the state. The cooling system can run on DC power and achieve a SEER rating of 36 during the day which is significantly higher than the other HVAC systems in the market.
