If you buy power here on the Big Island you pay close to $0.40 per kilowatt-hour. If you are a commercial customer you pay upward of around $0.51 per kilowatt-hour. The national average is $0.11 per kilowatt-hour for residences! Hawaii is ranked highest in the nation for the cost of energy and the rates keep going up!
Big Island Electric has savings solutions for you.
Lighting consumes approximately 12% of your energy bill in a residence, and 40% in your commercial building. You can reduce this percentage by using energy efficient LED lamps.
Or reduce overall costs by installing a whole home Photo Voltaic or Wind Turbine System. Installed in conjunction with a Generator, you could conceivably pay nothing for your power bill and save thousands every year as opposed to paying the Power Company any further.
WE HAVE THE SOLUTIONS FOR SAVINGS
Consider these Energy Savings Solutions for your home or business. Photo Voltaic, LED Bulbs and Wind Energy Turbines are a part of the solution to higher and higher energy costs. Big Island Electric can work with you to determine your energy consumption and provide recommendations on how you can reduce your power bill.
Photovoltaic is commonly known as solar power. Solar power utilizes less physical space than conventional power plants and is pollution-free during use. PV installations can operate for many years with little maintenance and operating costs are low compared to traditional power sources.
LED (Light Emitting Diode) Bulbs are the next generation in conventional lighting. The incandescent bulbs you use now will be phased out by the end of 2014 which will lead to more technical advancements of LED's to produce higher efficiency at lower costs. LED's are 85% more efficient than traditional household incandescent bulbs, and they have a longer lifespan. Switching to LED light bulbs can greatly reduce your power bill, saving you thousands in just a short period of time.
Small WInd Energy Systems are one of the fastest growing forms of customer-sited electric generation and one of the best energy investments for small businesses and homeowners. Small wind turbines range from 400 watts to 500 kilowatts and typically consist of a single turbine which can easily meet the demand of a home, farm or small business.
