Powering Our Future
Our Islands are blessed with an abundance of clean, renewable energy sources. Hawaiian Electric Company is committed to integrating these new and evolving technologies to increase our state's self-sufficiency and provide our customers with more stable and predictable pricing. These technologies include:
The ability to produce our own power will create positive change for our economy, our environment, our communities and our freedom from oil-based dependence.

- Power Supply Improvement Plans (PSIP): Part 1
- Power Supply Improvement Plans (PSIP): Part 2
As exciting as these new technologies are, Hawaii's move to a clean energy future is a multi-prong, multi-year initiative that also requires consumers to do their part by conserving electricity when possible. This could be as simple as turning off lights or as complex as installing a PV (solar) system in your home.
Working together, we will protect Hawaii, the environment and our future generations.
Hawaiian Electric, Maui Electric and Hawaii Electric Light Company are committed to increasing Hawaii's use of clean energy and reducing our dependency on imported oil.
Our goals include:
- 100 percent renewable energy by 2045
- Reduction in customer bills
- Nearly tripling the amount of distributed solar, largely rooftop solar
How are we doing?
In 2015, more than 23 percent of the energy used by the Hawaiian Electric Companies' customers came from renewable sources, up from nearly 21 percent in 2014.
