Just in Time for the Holidays, Hawaii Energy Offers FREE and $10 Energy-Saving Kits!

HONOLULU, November 24, 2015 – Save energy and money this holiday season. Starting Nov 24th, for a limited time, Hawaii Energy is offering two energy-saving kits to electric utility ratepayers of Hawaii, Honolulu and Maui counties. You can choose from a free home energy kit, upgrade and purchase the $10 home energy kit, or get both.

The free home energy kit contains 3 energy-efficient A19 LED bulb (60 watt equivalent), which is valued at $25. The kit is estimated to save a household about $15 each year in electricity or the equivalent of 58.5 kilowatt hours (kWh) (based on $0.25 per kWh).The bulbs in the kit are used in many common household fixtures such as desk lamps and wall lighting.

The $10 home energy kit contains an advanced power strip and 3 LED BR30 bulbs, which is valued at $53. The kit is estimated to save a family about $40 annually or the equivalent of 161.3 kWh (based on $0.25/kWh). The bulbs in this kit are typically used in track and recessed fixtures.The advanced power strip prevents electronic devices from drawing power when they are turned off or not in use (also known as a phantom load).

“Earlier this year, Hawaii Energy offered two energy-saving kits that sold out faster than we anticipated,” said Deputy Program Manager, Caroline Carl. “Since we had such positive feedback, we are launching another promotion now until the end of the year or while supplies last. Don’t miss your chance to get in on the energy savings!”

Each of the energy-saving items in the kit are easy to install and do not require professional installation.  The kits and shipping are substantially subsidized by Hawaii Energy to encourage customers to take advantage of this offer, which is available on a first-come, first-served basis and while supplies last.

To get the kits, go to www.Hawaiienergy.com/kits and enter your zip code and mailing address. Each household is limited to one free kit and one $10 kit.  Kits will arrive via standard U.S. mail between 4 to 6 weeks.
