The largest, single contributor to the average Hawaiian household electric bill is a hot water heater.
According to the Hawaii Homeowner’s Guide to Energy, Comfort & Value, published by the State of Hawaii, Hawaiian Electric Company has determined that 40% of the average consumer’s electric bill feeds water heaters. Let our abundant Hawaiian sunshine take that burden off your electric bill by letting it do what it does best, heat things up! No one solution fits every household. Our trained solar consultants can provide you with an analysis that will provide you with the best options for your individual situation.
