Lia Young Hunt discusses her personal journey with self-contained solar-powered devices and the coining of the word Solarcology®. Goldwings introduced the first self-contained solar-powered device made by Carmanah Technologies Corp, to the Hawaiian Islands in 2000 as a marine and aviation solution. In 2007, Goldwings installed the world’s largest wireless, solar-powered, remote controlled airfield, at the Pacific Missile Range Facility Barking Sands on the island of Kaua’i. Later that year, we installed the first solar helipad in the Pacific at Tripler Hospital at Fort Shafter. The technology evolved into Traffic, Obstruction and Outdoor Lighting solutions. Nearly 20 years later, Goldwings remains a key distributor for Carmanah Technologies Corp. nationwide.
Goldwings’ reputation in the solar industry would forge the way for other manufacturers like First Light Technologies a maker of outdoor solar bollards and parking lot lights. Today, Goldwings is known as a technical solutions provider with a product suite which delivers innovation, reliability and superior performance. Goldwings customer base includes the DoD, Federal, State, City & County, Commercial and Residential markets. Our commitment to marketplace education and investment in relationships sets us apart. We continue to lead by weaving Hawaiian values in the art of conducting business, delivering the art of the possible.
