Lāhainā - all that sunshine is good for something!

Extended Horizons' shop is located on West Maui, and the town of Lahaina. "Lahaina was the capital of the Kingdom of Hawaiifrom 1820 to 1845.[7] King Kamehameha III, son of Kamehameha I, preferred the town to bustling Honolulu... The name Lā hainā means "cruel sun" in the Hawaiian language, describing the sunny dry climate.[6] Lahaina averages only 13 inches (330 mm) of rain per year..." (source: Wikipedia)... all of that sunshine is perfect for our solar powered dive shop!

Last month we generated 1,783.33 kWh of energy...
The environmental impact equivalent of growing 32.83 trees for 10 years...
or not driving 2,948.68 miles in a car...
or conserving 3.45 barrels of crude oil!

We are pleased to be maintaining our commitment to Green Initiatives!
