The Story of Haleakala Solar

Today, Haleakala Solar employs 150 employees, and a dynamic management team with decades of experience and expertise. The company’s operations continues to expand and the need to recruit talented and dedicated individuals is a top priority.

Haleakala Solar recently made the list of the top 250 solar contractors in the United States compiled by Solar Power World, one of the industry’s top publications for technology, development and installation news.

The list ranks companies according to influence in the residential, commercial and utility solar-installation markets.

Haleakala Solar was founded in March 1977 by James Whitcomb. Energy costs were far less in 1977 than today, and the only way that Haleakala Solar could sell solar systems was to make sure they would last beyond the payback period. Whitcomb realized that the only way to insure this was to use the highest quality materials. But more importantly hire, train, and retain outstanding and talented individuals to provide service to its customers.
