Thanks for the plugTo the Forum:

I would like to thank The Garden Island for its March 19th article about Kauai

Electric’s residential Energy Wise Programs and KE’s collaboration with the

County Housing Agency which makes solar water heating more affordable to many

Kauai residents.

I would also like to thank those who have called the

Energy Wise office to inquire about participating in the program.


residential Energy Wise Program is in its third year of providing customers

with energy-saving information and the installation of free energy saving

devices to households that heat their water electrically.

While KE is

finding a surprisingly large number of customers have already installed solar

water heating, there are many who have not. Many residents of Kaua’i and

customers of Kauai Electric can benefit from installing solar water heating in

their homes.

Hopefully the combination of solar rebates from Kauai

Electric and low interest loans from the County Housing Agency will make solar

water heating installations possible for a greater number of people.


exposure that was received from The Garden Island article has helped our

efforts immensely.
