If you’re considering putting a PV solar system into your home or business, there are some new regulations from Hawaiian Electric Co. (HECO) you need to know.

As of September, customers have been required to submit a proposal to HECO prior to their system being installed. The proposal is reviewed to determine what effects your system may have on the electrical grid in your neighborhood. The impact on the grid may lead to HECO charging a higher fee or even refusing the approval to do the installation.


Smart Energy Hawaii steps in at this point. The company has a proven track record and will work with you and HECO to do a proper analysis of your neighbor-hood based on the Locational Value Map (LVM) at no cost. They will take care of all the paperwork and work quickly and diligently to help you find the best outcome.


With many choices, how do you choose the right company to help you? The short and simple answer is to choose one you can trust. Smart Energy Hawaii was founded by Myron “Pinky” Thompson. Guided by family values he learned from his late father, Thompson was committed to preserving the land and culture to help create a safe, healthy and sustainable Hawaii.

When Thompson started the company, he had a vision to help people and provide goods and services with quality and value that would be recognized and respected. Today Smart Energy Hawaii has done just that with hundreds of happy customers and successful installations.


“Our pledge to our customers is to deliver what you want and expect, at the price you expect, with the highest quality and commitment to service,” Thompson said.
