Electrical upgrades slated at Kohala High School


A project to provide Kohala High School with electrical upgrades will soon be underway. Kohala High School received funding from the Department of Education for electrical upgrades to Building J, which houses the school’s administration offices, elementary and high school libraries and a computer lab.

“I am pleased that Kohala High School has received funding for these much needed upgrades,” said Sen. Malama Solomon, who represents Senate District 4, encompassing Hilo, Hamakua, Kohala, Waimea, Waikoloa and Kona. “These improvements will enable Kohala High School to provide our students with the modern learning environment and tools necessary to succeed in today’s digital age.”

The project will cost $150,000 and includes upgrades to the HELCO electrical service to the school, improvements to the building’s electrical capacity, replacement of lighting fixtures with more energy efficient ones and additional electrical outlets for technology use.

The additional electrical outlets in the library will provide for small meeting, learning and teaching areas with smart board capability that the school desired and did not previously have.

The start dates of the construction work have yet to be determined.
