Our Story

As one of Hawaii's oldest and largest companies, we are deeply committed to our customers, neighbors, and friends.

Hawaiian Electric was presented the "Mauli Ola" award (the breath of life) for its support in all three of the American Lung Association's primary programs - Tobacco Control, Asthma Education and Clean Air Quality. Hawaiian Electric was the first major corporation in Hawaii to implement a company-wide no-smoking policy, protecting air quality with power plant efficiency, and supporting Lung Association programs such Open Airways for Schools® asthma program and Asthma Sports Day Camps.
