Install a solar water heater, get a $750 rebate
Homeowners who replace their electric water heaters with solar heaters are now qualified for a $750 rebate through the Hawai'i Energy Efficiency Program, down from $1,000 as of today.
Administrators for the program, formally called HECO Energy Solutions, said the reduction was necessary because of budget cuts statewide, but point out that the original rebate on O'ahu was $750. Get more information and rebate forms at www.hawaiienergy.com.
