Hawaii Energy is the state energy conservation and efficiency program implemented to help reduce Hawaii's dependence on foreign oil.
To educate, encourage and incentivize the ratepayers of Hawaii to invest in conservation behaviors and efficiency measures to reduce Hawaii's dependence on imported fuels.
Choosing efficiency and conservation results in many benefits, including:
- Saving money through rebates and smaller electric bills
- Protecting the environment for our children and future generations
- Reducing our dependence on foreign oil
- Creating a sustainable economy for Hawaii
- Investing in business for future growth and sustainability
- Controlling Hawaii's increasing demand for electricity
- Decreasing one's carbon footprint
Utilizing ratepayer funds, Hawaii Energy offers cash rebates and other incentives to residents and businesses to help offset the cost of installing energy efficient equipment. In addition to rebates, the program conducts education and training to residents, businesses and trade allies (contractors) to encourage the adoption of energy conservation behaviors and efficiency measures. The program plays an important role in helping the state achieve the Hawaii Clean Energy Initiative (HCEI) goal of reducing total electric energy usage by 4.3 billion kWh by 2030.
This is a daunting task that will require a greatly expanded effort on many levels and will involve the proactive support of every citizen of Hawaii. Hawaii Energy will aggressively employ new initiatives in energy conservation and efficiency and also integrate these initiatives with renewable energy efforts to help meet all HCEI goals.
Hawaii Energy employs approximately 35 employees in full and part-time roles with the knowledge, skill and passion to help individuals and businesses save energy. The Hawaii Energy team works together to assist residents and businesses with investing in energy efficiency measures to reduce the state's dependence on imported oil.
