Who is Mālama Solar?

The Hawaiian solar company with local crew members and local priorities in mind

Mālama means “to care for.” When founders Chris and Rachel Ah Sue formed the company, they wanted a name that reflected not only their connection to their Hawaiian home, but also our duty – our kuleana – to care for the planet. Everywhere you go on our islands you’ll see the phrase Mālama ‘Āina—the Hawaiian value that if you care for the land, the land will care for you.

Solar for Hawai'i

Our business is locally owned in Honolulu, with local crew members who value our shared community. That local connection is a matter of pride for us. Not only do we want to help make Hawaii greener through our daily business operations, but we also look for ways to stay connected to our community, including participating in local community events and holding cultural awareness days with our team members.
