Hawaiʻi Energy launched its new Lighting Distributor Instant Rebate program to provide businesses and the contractors who serve them instant lighting rebates–as much as 75 percent of costs–at the time of purchase.

Hawaiʻi Energy, the ratepayer-funded energy conservation and efficiency program for Hawaiʻi, Honolulu and Maui Counties, developed the program to help contractors and electric utility business customers reduce the working capital required to implement energy-efficient lighting projects.

Lighting rebates are applied to the invoice at the time of purchase so customers do not need to complete any rebate forms.

To receive these instant rebates, contractors and business customers must enroll with Hawaiʻi Energy and purchase qualified lighting from participating distributors.


The list of distributors can be found online.


To help kick off the program, businesses can attend a free “Lighting Lunch ‘N Learn” event to learn more about the program as well as meet local lighting contractors for potential projects.

As the rebate’s first participating distributor, Graybar is sponsoring this event to be held at Harbor View Center on Oʻahu, located at 1129 Nimitz Highway just above Nico’s Pier 38, on Wednesday, July 15 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.

RSVP no later than July 8 by contacting Lisa Harmon, Clean Energy Ally specialist, via email.


“The Lighting Distributor Instant Rebate program is truly a win-win for everyone,” said Larry Newman, director of Business Operations, Hawaiʻi Energy. “Contractors and businesses have lower carrying costs and no applications to fill out, while we believe distributors can grow their business as a result.”

Lighting distributors interested in offering the rebate program to their customers are required to become Clean Energy Allies and submit an online application.

Hawaiʻi Energy offers cash rebates for a variety of energy-efficient lighting that ranges from affordable, reduced wattage T8s to a multitude of LED products for general interiors, refrigerated cases, exit signs and occupancy sensors.

For more information, call Hawaiʻi Energy at (808)  839-8880 on Oʻahu or (877) 231-8222 toll-free from the Neighbor Islands.
