At Hawaiian Electric we are committed to preserving all that makes our islands so special. One of the ways we are accomplishing this is by working hard to achieve a clean energy economy. In October 2008, the Hawaiian Electric Companies signed a landmark Energy Agreement with the State of Hawaii as part of the Hawaii Clean Energy Initiative to move Hawaii away from imported oil towards a more sustainable future.
The initiatives listed below are mechanisms that are available for those interested in selling energy to Hawaii Electric:
Competitive Bidding was adopted by the PUC as a mechanism for acquiring or building new energy generation in Hawaii. The process is initiated by Hawaiian Electric with the issuance of a Request for Proposals (RFP). All projects greater than 5MW on Oahu are subject to the PUC's Framework for Competitive Bidding. Please see Hawaiian Electric's Competitive Bidding page for more information.
FIT is designed to encourage renewable energy projects through standardized pricing and contract terms. Project sizes up to and including 5 MW on Oahu are eligible for FIT. Prices are based on type of technology and tiered by the size of your system. Please see Hawaiian Electric's Feed-In Tariff page for more information.
Hawaiian Electric is in the process of requesting a waiver from the Hawaii Public Utility Commission’s Competitive Bidding Framework for renewable energy projects that can be quickly placed into service at a low cost per kilowatt hour to help lower electric bills for our customers.
