Maui Electric Offers ʻOhana Energy Gift Program
By Maui Now Staff
The Hawaiian Electric Companies today introduced a new ʻOhana Energy Gift Program, that allows customers to give the gift of energy to their friends and family, or to help others in need.
The program allows customers to make payments toward a designated recipient’s electric account, and is available through Hawaiian Electric, Maui Electric and Hawaiʻi Electric Light companies.
“In Hawai‘i, we’re blessed to live in a very supportive and generous community,” said Jim Alberts, Hawaiian Electric senior vice president for customer service. He said the program was created, “because over the years we’ve received many requests from our customers for this kind of service.”
According to the company announcement, gifts may be anonymous, or the gift giver may choose to also send a special acknowledgement card with a personal message.
The recipient will receive an acknowledgement letter once the gift amount has been applied to their account; and gift givers will receive a confirmation letter once the gift amount has been applied.
The ʻOhana Energy Gifts are not tax deductible donations.
