Together, We Build a Better Hawaii

Inspired by an enlightened king more than a century ago, Hawaii was an early adopter of electricity to light homes and power industry. The ingenuity in creating and delivering power on these isolated islands is a unique story of innovation, connectivity and progressive thinking that continues today.

For more than 125 years, Hawaiian Electric has provided the energy that has helped drive the islands' development from a kingdom to a modern state. Hawaiian Electric serves 95 percent of the state's 1.4 million residents on the islands of Oahu, Maui, Hawaii Island, Lanai and Molokai.

Since 1891, we have been entrusted to power these islands and empower its citizens - a responsibility that has been both our mission and our honor.
