In early 2007, KTA Super Stores was the first supermarket in Hawai`i to install and operate energy-producing photovoltaic (PV) systems at both our Waimea, Kamuela and Kailua-Kona locations.

In early 2013, we expanded our renewable energy program by installing a PV system our Keauhou, Kona location. Our partner location, Waikoloa Village Market, also installed installed a PV system at that time.

Environmental Benefits

To date, these photovoltaic systems have reduced emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) by over 4,590 tons. This is equivalent to planting nearly 869 acres of trees or not driving 8,618,957 miles!
