Clean Energy Hawaii

Our Islands are blessed with an abundance of clean, renewable energy sources. Hawaiian Electric is committed to integrating these new and evolving technologies to maximize our state's self-sufficiency and provide our customers with more stable and predictable pricing. These technologies include:

The ability to produce clean energy, mostly or completely from local and homegrown resources, will create positive change for our economy, our environment, our communities and our freedom from oil-based dependency.

Our Commitment

Hawaiian Electric is committed to increasing Hawaii's use of clean energy and reducing our dependency on imported oil.

Our goals include 100 percent renewable energy by 2045.   Learn more about our vision.

How are we doing?

Hawaiian Electric achieved a consolidated 27 percent renewable portfolio standard in 2018, even with the loss of Hawaii Island's geothermal resource for most of the year following the Kilauea volcanic eruption. The consolidated number would have been 29 percent had Puna Geothermal Venture (PGV) produced at the same level as 2017.

Hawaii Island still led the state with 44 percent of customer electricity use coming from renewable resources in 2018. Maui County, including Molokai and Lanai, recorded 38 percent and Oahu was 22 percent, up from 21 percent in 2017.

We are well on our way to achieving the next mandated RPS milestone, 30 percent by 2020, which comes from the use of a diverse mix of renewable sources, including waste-to-energy, biomass, geothermal, hydro, wind, biofuels and solar, both utility-scale and customer-sited rooftop systems.
