Hawaii Energy sees savings
HONOLULU — The Hawaii Energy program recently released its Annual Report for Program Year 2016, detailing the highest level of energy savings since the program’s inception eight years ago.
These two factors combined mean Hawaii Energy operated at its most efficient, lowest cost of acquired savings ever.
“The numerous island families and local businesses who participate in Hawaii Energy programs are contributing to approximately $440 million in savings over the life of their installed energy-efficiency measures,” said Brian Kealoha, Hawaii Energy executive director.
The annual report highlights Hawaii Energy’s delivery of 141 million kilowatt hours (kWh) in first-year savings from July 1, 2016 through June 30, 2017, and 1.76 billion kWh in lifetime energy savings. The energy savings from this program year are the equivalent of building a 90 megawatt (MW) solar farm.
