Energy Wise ‘small miracle’

To the Forum:RE: Kauai’s Electric Energy Wise Program

I never

thought that I would be writing a letter thank my electric company with all my

heart. For many of us on Kauai, the financial times are hard, and the cost of

electricity is a serious problem, but Kauai Electric has performed a small

miracle at our house through its Energy Wise Programs.

First, a nice man

came who studies our energy usage, and then gave us water saving faucet ends

and expensive energy saving light bulbs. Then Ms. Harrington came and arranged

for a complete solar water heating system to be installed at a price that I

could afford. The payments on the system are less than the amount that I am

saving right now, so that system is for all intents and purposes free also.

I support the electric company’s Energy Wise Solar Program and appreciate

the incentives that are offered to make switching to solar energy more
