Program Links Businesses and Residents with Energy Experts
By Maui Now Staff
Hawaiʻi Energy has initiated a Clean Energy Ally Program to connect Hawaiʻi businesses and residents with local energy efficiency experts. The program aims to make it easier for participants to utilize cash rebates and incentives.
Hawaiʻi Energy is a ratepayer-funded energy conservation program serving Maui County, as well as Hawaiʻi and Oʻahu. The program has aligned with over 80 allies to provide utility customers with assistance in energy efficiency projects.
The allies include contractors, equipment vendors, architects, engineers, distributors, manufacturers and retailers who provide energy-efficient products and services, from air conditioning and lighting to restaurant wares and construction.
“The Clean Energy Ally program makes it incredibly easy for customers to go online and find qualified companies for their energy-saving project,” explained Lisa Harmon of Hawaiʻi Energy. “Our allies are knowledgeable about our technical requirements, program offerings and the application process for cash incentives. These cash incentives can significantly reduce project costs and payback periods–two important factors in the decision-making process.”
