ESW in UH System News

“Solar Cart project powers up renewable energy education”

View the story: http://www.hawaii.edu/news/2015/07/10/solar-cart-project-powers-up-renewable-energy-education/

“Projects like the Kapiʻolani CC Solar Cart are a vital part of the university’s larger strategy to improve sustainability and sustainability education because they offer us the ability to enhance students’ learning experience through solving real-world challenges that directly impact our campuses,” said UH System Sustainability Coordinator Matthew Lynch. “These small-scale pilot projects also allow us to test innovative technologies and ideas to develop viable solutions that can be deployed at larger scales.”


E HOʻOMAIKAʻI ANA ia ʻoukou!
CONGRATULATIONS YOU GUYS!

This is the step that everyone needs to be taking in the world.

If Every home had something like this, they would be able to survive without generators and other costly things that most of the Kanaka cannot afford in the first place.

I hope that you can make a copywrite or something and sell the plans because I have 38 in my household and have lived through 2 hurricanes struggling with my 7 children now with 18 grandchildren too.

We would surely be able to build one with the diverse talents in our ʻohana because everyone is a “jack of all trades” and a master of none.

I am the first one able to go to college at 50. My two daughter in laws have liberal arts degrees and other than that, we all just have work experience in the real world.

But this project that you folks have created would be just as important as our hulihuli machine, our poi grinder, our pakini, and our toolshed.

Because this would help our ʻohana connect with the modern amenities that we need when there is no other source available.

Hūlō Hūlo Hūlō!

Iesū pū, aloha.

Tūtū Māmā Uʻilani Kūhaulua

The Hawaii chapter of ESW is privileged to announce the beginning of a dynamic and progressive relationship with Solar Cool Hawaii.

 Solar Cool Hawaii company president, Myron Thompson, leads a skilled and environmentally sound team with a company focus on sustainability in Hawaii. Myron’s company is rooted in family values and commitment to the ‘āina, a true leader in sustainability for Hawaii. Myron’s company mission directly reflects ESW-KCC’s values, ethics, importance in education, STEM outreach, community implementation and passion for engineering, making this collaboration a perfect match.
Myron’s brother, Nainoa, is a Native Hawaiian navigator and president of the Polynesian Voyaging Society. Nainoa has inspired and led a revival of traditional voyaging arts in Hawai’i and Polynesia-arts which has demanded the attention of the United Nations and the world. These voyages have inspired the United Nations to focus on sustainability and bring change to the forefront of world discussion.
Myron and Nainoa continue to inspire the world to a sustainable future daily through action in Hawaii and the global community, something ESW Hawaii believes in and strives for.
We will be working directly with Steve Carlson, head system designer. Steve reflects the company mission with passion and through his skills. Steve holds a degree in Computer Science and 20 years of industry experience in Hawaii.
We could not be more pleased to partner with a local company that truly represents the future of a sustainability driven engineering and business relationship. We invite you to check the links below for further information on  Solar Cool Hawaii and Hawaiian Voyaging Traditions with Nainoa Thompson.
