Hawaiian Electric new solar initiatives

Hawaiian Electric has announced some new initiatives to keep rooftop solar moving forward in the islands. 

With space for large renewable energy plants extremely limited in the islands, the utility and its partners (including you!) must get creative with new ways to achieve the decarbonization of Hawaii’s power grid by 2045.

To provide as much support as possible, the utility is rolling out a few initiatives to help you get the most out of your home solar system, and participate directly in development of the smart grid on Maui, Big Island, and Oahu.
