In 2015, Kona Air Conditioning announced plans to build a large air conditioning unit to be located on Kauai, the world’s largest island.
Now, it’s the latest in a series of news reports that the company has been selling air conditioning units at a rate of $3 million a month, about two times the cost of typical air conditioners in the U.S. A spokesperson told KHON2 that the unit would be built on a former dairy dairy and that it would not have a cooling system.
The air conditioning company said that it plans to open the facility by 2020.
But the building will not be able to accommodate the air conditioner, according to a report in the Honolulu Star-Advertiser.
The air conditioning system will be installed on the site of the former dairy.
The building’s current owner is still seeking an easement for the facility.
“They’re taking a gamble on Kaua’i,” the spokesperson said.
“We want to make sure that the building is there for years to come.”
Kauai Air Conditioner has been operating at a loss since the company filed for bankruptcy in 2011.
The company filed bankruptcy protection in 2014 after failing to find new investors and struggling with debt.
KAECO was sold for $2.5 million in December.
