DEP Completes New Solar System at Central Union Church

 

HONOLULUwww.dephawaii.com – Central Union Church today announced it is expected to save almost $12,000 in energy costs per year through its new 116 kW photovoltaic (PV) system installed by Distributed Energy Partners (“DEP”). DEP installed the solar system on the Women’s Building and Parish Hall at Central Union Church’s 8.4-acre campus in Honolulu.

 

“Helping Central Union Church take advantage of Hawaii's natural resources with a PV system has been a privilege,” said Steve Mazur, DEP’s Senior Renewable Energy Developer. “I commend the members at the church who committed to find ways to reduce electricity use through a series of efficiency projects along with the PV installation. The PV project will set a great example to the community of ways to reduce our dependence on imported oil and making choices that will benefit our generation and future generations.”

Latest Kaiser Permanente Technology Innovation Helps Members Love the Skin They're In

Kaiser Permanente today announced the launch of teledermatology, a virtual service allowing dermatologists to view images of suspicious moles, lesions and rashes via Kaiser Permanente HealthConnect®, their leading edge electronic medical record system.  “Tele-derm” started as a pilot project on Maui and the Big Island and is now available to all Kaiser Permanente patients to improve access to specialists, speed the diagnostic process and improve clinical outcomes.

Through the service, dermatologists review photos sent via secure email server from primary care physicians and determine whether a face-to-face appointment is necessary to further diagnose or treat the condition. The triage process is convenient for patients who do not need to be referred for further care, and leaves more time for specialists to treat patients whose skin problems warrant an in-person visit.
