The benefits of energy-efficient lighting are straight-forward and compelling.

  • Energy-efficient lighting is one of the fastest and easiest ways to save electricity and reduce overhead costs.
  • Lighting retrofits can have payback periods of 1 – 3 years or less.
  • Lighting can account for 20% – 50% of a business’ overall energy costs.

Hawaii Energy offers a variety of cash incentives for reduced wattage T8s and a variety of LED products ideal for general interiors, refrigerated case lighting, exit signs, exterior lighting as well as occupancy sensors. These incentives reduce the investment needed to increase the efficiency of your facility and lower your energy bills.

Types of Incentives

There are two ways to get incentives from Hawaii Energy:

1. Apply Directly to Hawaii Energy

Hawaii Energy has a team of dedicated professionals to help you through the process! Lighting projects will fall under one of two categories: standard or customized.


Standard (or prescriptive) lighting incentives are a set dollar amount per unit and are available for screw-in LEDs, refrigerated case lighting, LED exit signs, reduced wattage T8s, delamping and occupancy sensors. Incentives range from $2.50 - $75 each.

Standard Application Standard Worksheet Summary Sheet


Customized lighting incentives are based on actual energy savings during the first year. This is established by specifying your current lighting, new lighting and operating hours. Some of the most common types of lighting addressed by the custom application are linear LED and exterior LED lighting.
