As inflation eats at the margins of small businesses, many have turned to creative solutions to save money; one of those solutions is changing the way we use energy. Saving energy is one of the most effective ways to drive down operating costs because of the large returns on investments and superb bonus benefits, like improving employee and customer experiences, reduced maintenance costs, and helping Hawaiʻi move toward its clean energy future.

Hawaiʻi Energy’s programs are designed to help businesses save energy and money. In 2020 alone, Hawaiʻi Energy helped the business community save $18.2 million in annual energy costs!
