All funds for energy audits and re/retrocommissioning incentives allotted for the 2021-22 Program Year have been expended. Hawaii Energy is assembling a waitlist of applications for pre-approval when funds become available at the start of the new Program Year on July 1, 2022. Applications on the waitlist will be reviewed for pre-approval in the order received when the funds are available. Rebate levels for waitlisted projects are not guaranteed. Reach out to your energy advisor to submit an application for the waitlist or email us at HawaiiEnergy@Leidos.com.
Audits & Retro-Commissioning
Energy Audits & Energy Studies
Audits help you understand how energy is being used (and wasted) throughout your facility – the best first step in a “whole-building” approach to reducing your consumption and costs. Receive a rebate toward completing an ASHRAE Level 2 audit (the industry standard) or equivalent, plus a bonus for any conservation measures implemented as a result of the audit within the first two years of audit completion.
An energy study is typically performed after an audit, and is intended to provide a more detailed analysis of a focused mechanical system or piece of equipment, such as a chiller system. Receive a rebate toward completing an ASHRAE Level 3 study (the industry standard) or equivalent, plus a bonus for any conservation measures implemented within the first two years after the study is completed. NOTE: Energy studies must be approved by Hawaii Energy before execution to qualify.
Re-Commissioning and Retro-Commissioning
For optimum efficiency and performance, Hawaii Energy recommends periodically evaluating your current building systems through re/retro-commissioning. Earn a rebate toward a portion of the commissioning study cost, plus an additional amount based on actual energy savings and peak demand reduction.
The energy audits & retro-commissioning (RCx) rebate budget has been exhausted for this program year (through June 30, 2022) due to overwhelming interest in this program. We are no longer offering audit or RCx rebate pre-approval at this time, however completed applications will be accepted into a waitlist for future funding opportunity. Upon funding availability, notice of project pre-approval will be given. Rebate levels for waitlisted projects are not guaranteed. Your energy advisor can assist should you have any questions.
