Hawaiian waterpark installs 1.3-MW carport project to run 100% on solar

Hawaiian waterpark Wet’n’Wild Hawai’i recently installed a 1.3-MW solar project across the amusement park’s parking lot.

Mayor Rick Blangiardi proclaimed April 22, 2021 “Wet’n’Wild Hawai‘i Green Energy Day,” with a City & County of Honolulu proclamation delivered to the park’s General Manager Scott Loos and Marketing Director Eddie Galdones.

“This is something we have been planning for years and are so happy to finally execute — using the power of the sun here in sunny Kapolei and providing covered parking for our guests is a win-win,” says Loos. “To celebrate our new 2,958 solar panels, a special $29.58 admission will be offered to guests all weekend through Sunday, April 25.”

Sunspear Energy was the solar installation contractor for the project.

“We are very excited for the opportunity to partner with Wet‘n’Wild Hawaii and provide a solution to lower their energy costs and reduce their carbon footprint,” says Sunspear CEO Jeff Kaemmerlen. “With land being a scarce resource on O‘ahu, solar carports are a great solution for converting unused open space into a revenue generating asset while bringing us one step closer to Hawaii’s 100% renewable energy goal. We hope park guests enjoy returning to a cooler vehicle after a fun day at Wet’n’Wild!”
