Honolulu-based GreenPath Technologies, a renewable energy company, is marketing the solar shingles made by Dow Solar of Midland, Mich.
The Dow shingles are made to blend in with roofing materials instead of sit on racks above the roof.
According to Dow Solar and GreenPath, the companies are already providing estimates to Hawaii homeowners.
"We anticipate installations will begin within a few weeks," Josh Wimble, marketing and business communications representative for Dow Solar, said in an email.
Expansion at the waste-to-energy facility provides relief for landfills and eases the cost of electricity
Sandwiched between an oil refinery and a coal-fired power plant in Campbell Industrial park sits Hawaii's largest producer of electricity from renewable energy.
The often overlooked facility doesn't have any solar panels or wind turbines. A steady stream of garbage trucks lining up to disgorge their loads reveals the facility's fuel source: trash.
