Find way to keep Hawaii En­ergy vi­tal

Honolulu Star-Advertiser - - INSIGHT -

I was dis­ap­pointed to read about the cuts to the Hawaii En­ergy pro­grams due to GEMS (Green En­ergy Mar­ket Se­cu­ri­ti­za­tion). Hawaii En­ergy has been ef­fec­tive in ed­u­cat­ing our com­mu­ni­ties about en­ergy sav­ings and im­ple­ment­ing re­bates and in­cen­tive pro­grams. My fam­ily has re­placed all of our old ap­pli­ances with En­ergy Star mod­els, changed all of our lights to LED, in­stalled a wa­ter heat timer and smart power strips. Hawaii En­ergy paid re­bates and we have seen our elec­tric bill go down sig­nif­i­cantly. We en­cour­age friends and fam­ily to do the same as it is an easy way to save money and help Hawaii meet our en­ergy goals. Fix GEMS so fund­ing can go back to Hawaii En­ergy.

Jen­nifer Ig­na­cio Mililani them in­stead is our sup­port, love and un­der­stand­ing.
