Selling Power to the Utility
Feed-In Tariff Program
The Hawaiian Electric Companies' Feed-In Tariff ("FIT") program is designed to encourage the addition of more renewable energy projects in Hawaii. Pre-established FIT rates and standardized FIT contract terms provide an easy way for individuals, small businesses, governmental entities, or other developers to sell renewable energy to the Hawaiian Electric Companies.
Active Queue status can be viewed through the link below.
As of April 1, 2017, the FIT Independent Observer, Accion Group LLC, is no longer managing the FIT queues. The FIT program on all Islands and All Tiers are closed to new applications. Applicants with projects in active development are instructed to direct all communications through their respective companies email addresses shown below:
- Oahu - email@example.com

- Hawaii Island - email@example.com
The Feed-In Tariff (FIT) program is closed to new applications. On December 5, 2014 the Public Utilities commission issued Decision and Order No. 32499 in Docket No. 2013-0194 which approved the Companies’ and Independent Observer’s Joint Plan for administration of the FIT queues. Pursuant to the Order, projects in the FIT Reserve queue were removed and milestones established for the remaining projects in the FIT Active Queue.
The order stated that "future revisions or modifications to the FIT program will be addressed either in Docket No. 2014-0192, which has been established to review the HECO Companies' PSIPs". 1
