Prudential Locations Selects Hoku Solar to Install PV on Prudential Locations’ Oahu Headquarters

HONOLULU, HI–(EMWNews – August 4, 2008) – Prudential Locations, LLC, Hawaii’s largest

locally owned and operated real estate company, announced today that it has

selected Hoku Solar, a wholly owned subsidiary of Hoku Scientific, Inc.

(NASDAQ: HOKU) that designs, engineers and installs turnkey photovoltaic

(PV) power systems, to install a PV power system on Prudential Locations’

Oahu headquarters.

Hoku Solar plans to install an 87-kilowatt PV system at Prudential

Locations’ Kapahulu Avenue office building. The system is expected to

generate more than 136,000 kilowatt hours of clean, solar electricity each

year. The solar power project is part of an ongoing renovation of

Prudential Locations’ flagship office and contributes directly toward the

company’s corporate sustainability initiative.

Once installed, Prudential Locations’ PV system is expected to produce

enough electricity over its lifetime to power the equivalent of three

hundred eighty-two homes for one year. Environmentally, it is expected to

offset nearly 2,160 tons of carbon dioxide emissions — the equivalent of

removing more than 139 cars from Hawaii’s roadways.

“Hoku is pleased to partner with Prudential Locations to complete this

important project,” said Dustin Shindo, chief executive officer of Hoku

Scientific. “Not only does PV make good business sense in Hawaii,

Prudential is showing great community leadership by investing in clean,

renewable energy for their Honolulu offices.”

“Our collaboration with Hoku to invest in new, innovative technology is one

of many sustainability efforts that allow us to do our part to reduce our

environmental footprint,” said Bill Chee, president and CEO of Prudential

Locations. “We view this as a long-term partnership between our companies,

and it is clear that Hoku shares Prudential’s focus on exemplary customer
