The collaboration will involve implementing solar roof solutions totaling over 1.15 megawatts  in nine parishes on the islands of Oahu and Maui: Co-Cathedral of St. Theresa – Honolulu; St. Joseph – Waipahu; Star of the Sea– Kahala; St.Anthony – Kailua; St. John the Baptist – Kalihi; Maria Lanakila – Lahaina; Christ the King – Kahului; St. Theresa – Kihei; St. Anthony – Wailuku.
 
Diocese leaders anticipate that the alternative energy solutions will meet 80% of future electrical needs, significantly reducing energy costs.
