Funding for this special rebate offer was appropriated by the Hawaii State Legislature in 2019 and is administered on behalf of the Hawaii Public Utilities Commission by Hawaii Energy. 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.
