Hawaiian Electric Companies Unveil New Energy Plans

 
Posted July 29th, 2014 @ 1:22pm

The Hawaiian Electric Companies are proposing a portfolio of programs to provide customers more options for saving on their electric bills while supporting the adoption of more clean energy, reducing the use of more expensive fossil-fueled generation and relieving stress on the electric grid. The plan lays out new and enhanced "demand response" programs for residential, commercial, industrial and water pumping customers. Under the programs, customers receive financial incentives for shifting energy use to certain times of the day or voluntarily allowing the output of certain appliances or equipment to be adjusted if necessary to help maintain reliable service for island grids. The plan was filed with the Public Utilities Commission Monday.
