New products and services just for you

We're bringing you new products and services that will help you match your energy usage to your needs. In doing so, you can take control of your electric bill and find more ways to save.

Smart Grid and Smart Meters
When you're part of a smart grid, you can monitor the electricity you use through a web portal on your computer, laptop or tablet. Then you can make adjustments to reduce your usage. With a Smart Meter you can help make service more reliable and improve the integration of renewable energy. The Hawaiian Electric Companies are proposing to complete installation of smart grids in Maui County and on Hawaii Island by the end of 2017, and on Oahu by the end of 2018.

Demand Response
Our Demand Response programs are a way for you to earn monthly incentives for temporarily reducing your electricity during peak hours, which are times when usage on the grid is high.

Electric Vehicle Programs
If you're an electric vehicle (EV) owner, you can sign up for our program that offers lower rates for charging your EV. It's a "time-of-use" program with lower rates during the off-peak hours from 9 p.m. to 7 a.m.

Community Solar*
Community Solar is a program for those of you who live in an apartment building and can't have solar or live in a home but choose not to install solar. You can still receive the benefits of solar by purchasing an interest in a community solar project. You'll receive credits in proportion to your interest, and these credits will lower your electric bill.

*The Hawaii Public Utilities commission must approve the rules for Community Solar.
