Unlock the Power of Energy Storage with Hawaiian Electric’s Bring Your Own Device Program

Aloha, Hawaii homeowners! Are you ready to take your solar energy game to the next level? At Eco Solar Hawaii, we’re thrilled to share Hawaiian Electric’s Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) program, designed to help you maximize your energy savings while contributing to Hawaii’s goal of achieving 100% clean energy by 2045.

What is the Bring Your Own Device Program?

The BYOD program is an exciting opportunity for customers who want to add a new battery to their existing rooftop solar system. By participating in this program, you’ll receive cash incentives for installing a new battery and dispatching energy during specified time periods. This not only helps you save money on your energy bills but also supports the integration of more renewable resources into the grid as Hawaiian Electric phases out fossil fuel-fired generators.

Key Benefits of the BYOD Program

  1. Compatibility: BYOD is available for customers on various programs, including Smart Renewable Energy Export, Smart Renewable Energy Non-Export, Net Energy Metering, Net Energy Metering Plus, Customer Grid-Supply, Customer Grid-Supply Plus, and Smart Export.
  2. Incentives: Participants can receive an upfront incentive of $100 per kW committed (capped at $500), with an additional $100 per kW (capped at $500) for low and moderate-income (LMI) customers. You’ll also receive a monthly capacity performance incentive of $5 per kW committed and a monthly cash incentive for the energy drawn from your battery.
  3. Shift and Save: All BYOD participants will be enrolled in the Shift and Save rates, which enable you to save money by shifting your energy use away from high-demand evening and overnight hours when kWh rates are higher.
  4. Advanced Meters: As part of Hawaiian Electric’s grid modernization efforts, all BYOD participants must use advanced meters that enable two-way data sharing through a secure wireless communications network.
