As part of the Energy Solutions Business program, the Hawaii Energy Efficiency Program provides rebates for purchases of individual energy-efficient appliances. These rebates are available to customers of HECO, HELCO, and MECO as part of Hawaii's public benefits fund administered by Hawaii Energy.

Rebates vary based on energy savings, whether the purchase is for retrofitting or new construction, and in some cases, size of equipment. These rebates cover many of the energy-efficiency options for businesses, and those that are not covered specifically may fit into the Customized Incentives Program, which includes (but is not limited to) window tinting, adjustable speed drives, air conditioning system improvements, process heat recovery, booster pump, heat pump water heaters, and solar water heating.

Please refer to the program website for more information. Exact rebate amounts for businesses are listed on the Hawaii Energy website.
