Hawaiian Electric's anniversary cookbook to benefit Aloha United Way

Hawaiian Electric has published "Treasured Island Recipes: Celebrating 125 years serving Hawaiʻi," a special anniversary edition cookbook compiled by employees as a fundraiser for Aloha United Way. The 288-page, soft cover, spiral bound collection is $14 and features more than 200 recipes from employees and their families, Hawaiian Electric recipe archives, and many of the company's community and nonprofit partner organizations. Award-winning recipes from culinary students, a few local celebrity chefs, and a section on energy saving ideas for the home cook also are included.

All proceeds from the sale of the cookbook will benefit more than 340 agencies supported by Aloha United Way that provide programs, services and resources to the community.

"About half the recipes came from nonprofit groups that we support and we're grateful for their partnerships in strengthening our communities," said Alan Oshima, president and CEO. "By highlighting these organizations, we draw attention to their valuable work while celebrating Hawaiʻi's diverse food culture and our employees' legacy of caring for our communities."

About Hawaiian Electric Company (HECO)
For more than 100 years, Hawaiian Electric Company has provided the energy that has fueled the islands' development from a Hawaiian kingdom to a modern state. Hawaiian Electric Company, Inc. (HECO), and its subsidiaries, Maui Electric Company, Ltd. (MECO), and Hawaii Electric Light Company, Inc. (HELCO), serves 95% of the state's 1.2 million residents on the islands of O`ahu, Maui, Hawai`i Island, Lana`i and Moloka`i.

The energy we use is an essential but limited resource necessary to maintaining our quality of life. In a changing world, Hawaiian Electric has evolved to offer more than electricity.

Today, the company also provides energy solutions to help customers save money and use energy more efficiently. Hawaiian Electric also continues to pursue the use of more clean, renewable energy alternatives to help ensure a sustainable future for our islands.


Hawaiian Electric Company is dedicated to our community in which we live, work and serve. Rooted in Hawaii and one of the largest companies in the State, Hawaiian Electric takes the concept of malama pono -- to care for and serve -- to heart. The company and our employees have a long tradition of contributing with dollars, time and talent. Corporate citizenship is crucial to Hawaiian Electric's overall business plan because strong communities are essential to the success of the company, our employees and our customers.

Company and employee volunteerism is encouraged and every month, employees walk, run or provide manpower to dozens of non-profits throughout the State. Hawaiian Electric's corporate giving philosophy gives priority to projects that help families, promote education and protect the environment.

The company also sponsors robotics programs and events that promote STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics) education, as well as the SunPower for Schools program bringing solar electric power to select schools, the Solar Sprint event where students design, build and race cars using solar power, and the Home Energy Challenge, a school-based competition encouraging elementary school students and their families to reduce energy use at home, among other programs.

For nearly a decade, Hawaiian Electric volunteers have provided manpower, bucket trucks and ladders to install Christmas lights at the Kaimuki Community Park and playground before the annual Kaimuki Christmas Parade in December.
