Hawaii Airports Upgrading to LED Lights, Solar Systems

The Hawaii Department of Transportation (HDOT) has initiated the second phase of an energy savings initiative that will save more than $606 million in energy costs at Hawaii's airports over a 15-year period.

Phase 2 of HDOT’s Energy Savings Performance Contract with Johnson Controls (JCI) will provide high-efficiency lighting at 11 Hawai?i airports on Maui, O?ahu, Kauai and Hawai?i Island. Nearly 50,000 existing florescent light bulbs will be replaced by Light Emitting Diode (LED) lamps and fixtures, providing an estimated $65.5 million in energy savings.

The initiative will also provide over 15,000 photovoltaic, roof-mounted solar panels at Honolulu International Airport capable of generating 5.3 megawatts of power.
