Solar Moonshot Grant Recipient

Kaupō Community Association

Kula, Hawaii
"The Kaupō Community Association Inc. is honored to receive support from the Solar Moonshot Program which has enabled us to power our newly restored Kaupō Community Resource Center with 100% renewable energy! This special building — formerly a historic 1920s school that had fallen into disrepair — has truly become the heart of our small, rural Hawaiian community. As Kaupō, Hawai'i, and the world continue to navigate the physical, emotional, social, and economic toll of the coronavirus pandemic, indigenous communities across the globe are reclaiming ancestral wisdom and pathways to forge a more resilient future. This important project has taken our community one significant step forward along our journey to reclaim self-sufficiency and return to our traditional practices of aloha 'āina and mālama 'āina (love and care for the land)."
