By now you’ve heard that making energy efficient upgrades to your home can save you money, all the while saving the environment too. Over time, you’ll find that these savings add up. However, there are some upgrades to your home in Hawaii that will provide cash incentives almost immediately. Certain energy efficient products and services come with rebates, and with these rebates, you’ll reap the monetary benefits of going green.

To take advantage of these energy efficient rebates in Hawaii, you must go through Hawaii Energy, the ratepayer-funded conservation and efficiency program for Hawaii, Honolulu and Maui counties. Hawaii Energy states that these rebates are available on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Water Heating

According to Hawaii Energy, you can save about 35% on your energy costs when switching from an electric water heater to an energy efficient model, while also receiving federal and state tax credits. Furthermore, families of three or more will receive a $1,000 rebate, and families with less than three will receive a $200 debate for installing an ENERGY STAR water heater.

Lighting

We’ve established that CFL and LED lights can quickly save you a bundle. Their longer lifespan of anywhere from 6,000 to 25,000 hours means that you’ll be buying less light bulbs and saving more money. In addition to these initial savings, Hawaii Energy also provides instant rebates at specific retailers on the Hawaiian islands. CFL light bulbs have a $1 rebate, and LED bulbs will guarantee a $6 – 8 rebate.

Appliances

You have to look at energy efficient appliances as an investment. While they carry a larger up-front cost, you’ll soon see lower monthly bills as you save energy. Plus, Hawaii Energy gives varying rebates for appliance upgrades.

With the purchase of the ENERGY STAR Basic Refrigerator, costing $600 or less, you can receive a $50 rebate. You can also trade in your old, operational refrigerator for a $125 rebate when you purchase a new, ENERGY STAR refrigerator at participating retailers on the Hawaiian islands. Plus, when you want to get rid of your old refrigerator or freezer, Hawaii Energy will come pick it up for free and pay you a $25 or $65 rebate, depending on where you live. Finally, a purchase of an ENERGY STAR clothes washer will make you eligible for a $50 rebate from Hawaii Energy.

HVAC

Finally, Hawaii Energy provides rebates on a variety of heating and cooling products. A new ENERGY STAR Variable Refrigerant Flow Air Conditioner qualifies you for a $200 rebate. The purchase of a solar attic fan makes you eligible for a $50 rebate, a whole house fan for a $75 rebate and an ENERGY STAR ceiling fan for a $35 rebate.

As you can see, while the savings do stack up over time, there are other resources for energy efficient residents in Hawaii to depend on in order to see immediate savings. With incentives like these, what are you waiting for?
