TESTTABOUT INTER-ISLAND SOLAR SUPPLY

Inter-Island Solar Supply is one of the oldest and most experienced renewable energy equipment distributors in the world. Incorporated in Oahu, Hawaii in 1975, Inter-Island operated continuously under the same ownership until September 2014. The founder, Cully Judd, and President, Richard Reed, led the company through an ESOP transaction which transitioned the company to being 100% employee owned as of September 20, 2014.

Our guiding mission is to provide clean energy solutions to eliminate Hawaii’s dangerous and expensive dependence on polluting fossil fuels used to generate electricity. Inter-Island has four convenient branch locations in the Hawaiian Islands located in Oahu, Kahului, Lihue and Kailua-Kona. From those locations we serve over 650 wholesale customers. Our dedicated sales and technical support team has over 300 years of aggregate solar industry experience. For the last four decades, Hawaii’s leading design professionals, licensed contractors, and builders have relied on Inter-Island Solar Supply’s for top-tier clean energy equipment, applications support and our huge $10M+ stocking inventory.
