Global supply chain issues are impacting Hawaiian Electric’s ability to purchase materials and equipment, including some types of transformers and cables, which are resulting in longer lead times. We are doing everything we can to minimize impact on construction projects, including sourcing equipment and materials through a diverse pool of suppliers – but this is not a local phenomenon. Builders and developers should also plan for their own supply-chain challenges, i.e. the availability of meter cans and other electrical equipment. As such, Hawaiian Electric strongly encourages builders and developers to start the service request process much further in advance.
