Mall contemplates solar future -  Covering parking at Pearlridge with panels would generate electricity and create shade

Oahu’s second-largest mall is exploring the feasibility of installing photovoltaic solar panels over uncovered parking stalls on the 45-acre property.

The plan is to generate electricity at a long-term stable price for mall tenants, and provide more shaded parking for patrons.

About half of the roughly 6,000 parking spaces at Pearlridge are uncovered.

Fred Paine, Pearlridge general manager, said shaded parking spaces at the mall typically fill up first, so added cover from the hot sun for nearly all parking spaces would be a tremendous customer benefit.
