Hawaiian Electric has announced the launch of a free online tool, WattPlan, that would provide consumers interested in purchasing rooftop PV sytems easier access to decision-making information.

The new tool hopes to assist in the growth of solar energy while easing the task of estimating electric bill savings based on use of electricity, current rates, and rebates and tax credits that may be available.

“We want to increase rooftop PV sustainably and provide customers option and tools to manage their electric bills. Solar power is good for customers and good for the state, so we want to help people make informed decisions,” said Jim Alberts, Hawaiian Electric senior vice president of customer service.

Through the use of WattPlan, customers also have the ability to compare outright purchases to financing side-by-side to understand the long-term impact on individual budgets.

The new tool can be accessed through the Hawaiian Electric website.
