Funding for this special rebate offer is appropriated by the Hawaii State Legislature and is administered by Hawaii Energy under the direction of the Hawaii Public Utilities Commission. This rebate is therefore subject to different terms and conditions than other Hawaii Energy rebates, and we encourage you to read through the eligibility requirements and application thoroughly before applying.
