Hawaii Solar Industry Leaders Receive Prestigious U.S. Department of Energy SunShot Initiative Award

Hawaii Solar Industry Leaders Receive Prestigious U.S. Department of Energy SunShot Initiative Award

HONOLULU – SafeConnect Solar, a venture started by Hawaii solar industry veterans Mark Duda and Todd Georgopapadakos of Distributed Energy Partners, today announced it has been awarded $500,000 by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) SunShot Initiative.  The SunShot Incubator award supports development of SafeConnect’s patent-pending device that makes rooftop solar installations simpler, safer, and more affordable.

 

“Renewables are the future of energy generation, but price still limits adoption in many markets,” said Georgopapadakos, SafeConnect Solar Partner.  “For rooftop photovoltaics, the key challenge is reducing ‘soft costs’ – the expense associated with permitting, installation, interconnection, and maintenance.  These have remained persistently high even as module prices have plummeted. Our IP attacks these costs head-on.”
