Hawai’i Energy Offers Free Energy Saving Kits
Big Island electric utility ratepayers, along with those in Honolulu and Maui County, are being offered a free home energy saving kit from Hawai’i Energy, the ratepayer-funded conservation and efficiency program administered under a contract with the Hawai’i Public Utilities Commission.
The free energy kit contains three energy-efficient A19 LED bulbs, which are valued at $25.
According to Hawai’i Energy, the kits can save households an average of $15 per year in electricity costs.
“Earlier this year, Hawai’i Energy offered two energy-saving kits that sold out faster than we anticipated,” said Deputy Program Manager, Caroline Carl. “Since we had such positive feedback, we are launching another promotion now until the end of the year or while supplies last.”
Hawai’i Energy is also offering a paid kit, the $10 home energy kit which includes an advanced power trip and three LED BR30 bulbs, a value of $53. These kits can save households up to $40 annually.
Utility ratepayers can choose only the free kit, the $10 kit, or both.
Those interested should visit the Hawai’i Energy website and enter their zip code and mailing address. Shipping is free. Each household can request up to one of each type of kit and they should arrive in four to six week.
Hawai’i Energy is independent of the electric utilities.
