Achieve Energy Independence with Eco Solar Hawaii

Howard M.’s Solar Success Story

Are you a Hawaii homeowner searching for ways to reduce energy costs and minimize your environmental impact? Eco Solar Hawaii, your trusted solar partner on Oahu, has the solution. We’re excited to share Howard M.’s inspiring story, a Honolulu resident who transformed his energy consumption and achieved significant savings by going solar with us.

Eco Solar Hawaii: Helping Homeowners Embrace Clean Energy

Since 2008, Eco Solar Hawaii has been helping homeowners like Howard switch to clean, renewable energy. With over 3,000 successful installations and a proven track record of customer satisfaction, we provide top-quality solar solutions and exceptional service.

Howard’s Journey to Solar

Howard began his solar journey after receiving a referral from one of our satisfied customers. He struggled with monthly electricity bills reaching $1,300. Knowing it was time for a change, Howard reached out to us. Our consultant, Michael French, assessed Howard’s energy needs and designed a customized solar system to maximize his savings and efficiency.

A State-of-the-Art Solar System

We installed a state-of-the-art SunPower Solar system for Howard, featuring 46 high-performance solar panels that generate an impressive 20.24 KW DC. To ensure energy independence and reliable backup power, we incorporated three Tesla Powerwall batteries with a total storage capacity of 40.5 KWH. Our skilled team devised an innovative solution, triple stacking the batteries near the electrical meter for a clean and efficient setup.

Impressive Savings and Incentives

With his new SunPower Solar System, Howard is expected to save 3,400 kWh per month, equivalent to $1,360 in savings at $0.40 per kWh. The Tesla Powerwall batteries contribute an additional $420 per month in savings by storing excess energy for use during peak hours or power outages. Howard explored various financing options and took advantage of available incentives, including the 30% Federal Tax Credit and the 35% State Tax Credit.

Howard’s Testimonial

Here’s what Howard had to say about his experience with Eco Solar Hawaii:

“Everything was done to a T, from permit to install. Michael went above and beyond. With the batteries and solar, you don’t have to worry about power outages. Everything just clicks over to the batteries, whether it’s 5 minutes, 10 minutes, or night time – everything just works.”

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.

Harness the Power of the Sun with Eco Solar Hawaii: Your Trusted Home Solar Experts

Aloha, Hawaii homeowners! Are you ready to embrace the power of the sun and join the thousands of happy customers who have chosen Eco Solar Hawaii as their trusted home solar provider? We’re excited to share the story of Justin and Tammie Drake, new homeowners in the beautiful Hoopili subdivision of Ewa Beach, who recently made the decision to go solar with us.

At Eco Solar Hawaii, we’ve been Oahu’s premier home solar company since 2008, with over 3,000 successful installations. Our commitment to excellence and customer satisfaction has helped homeowners collectively save more than $13.6 million annually on their electric bills. As a Maxeon Preferred Partner and a Tesla Powerwall Premier Certified Installer, we offer the most advanced solar technology and energy storage solutions available in the market.

When the Drakes met our founder Ben during a site assessment on a neighboring property, they quickly realized the incredible potential for savings and reducing their carbon footprint. Ben collected their information and completed a site assessment that same day, and our solar designer and consultant Michael promptly followed up to guide them through the process.

Designing a solar system for a brand new home with no prior energy usage history can be challenging, but our extensive experience in the Hoopili area allowed us to create an accurate and efficient plan for the Drakes. We installed 16 Maxeon 430 solar panels, known for their unparalleled energy production, reliability, and durability. To optimize their energy consumption and provide true energy independence, we also integrated a Tesla Powerwall+ with a backup switch.

Our friendly and professional crew had the Drakes’ system up and running in just five hours, showcasing our commitment to swift and efficient installations. With their new solar setup, which includes 16 Maxeon 430 solar panels and a Tesla Powerwall+ with an integrated 7600-watt solar inverter and backup switch, the Drakes are projected to save $336 per month, or $4,032 annually, on their electricity bills. The Tesla Powerwall+ not only provides 13.5kWh of storage capacity but also adds an extra $140 per month in savings. The Drakes can expect a payback period of only 4.7 years for their investment in clean, renewable energy.

The Drakes were also able to take advantage of several incentives, including the 30% Federal Tax Credit, the 35% State Tax Credit, and the Maxeon Preferred Partner Discount available through Eco Solar Hawaii. These incentives, along with various financing options, can help make the switch to solar more affordable for homeowners.

Tammie Drake shared their decision to go solar with Eco Solar Hawaii:

“We just moved in less than 3 weeks ago to the Bluffs. I noticed the Sunpower truck outside so I stepped out to talk to Ben with interest in solar panels and backup batteries for our home. Ben connected me with Michael. Michael got in touch with me that same day. The next day he visited us in person providing us with a wealth of knowledgeable and a level of comfort in what we felt we needed. We said yes! He said the set up would be fast. We didn’t realize how fast. I cannot believe that within 10 days of meeting we now have solar installed. The team of install guys were swift, respectful, professional and friendly. They were prompt in their arrival time at 8am and literally completed by noon, possibly even before noon. I highly recommend Eco Solar and if the stars went higher than 5, they’d get it! Mahalo Nui Loa!!!”

At Eco Solar Hawaii, we’re passionate about helping Hawaii homeowners like the Drakes take control of their energy costs and reduce their carbon footprint. Our state-of-the-art Maxeon Solar Panels and Tesla Powerwall battery storage systems are designed to maximize your savings and provide long-lasting, reliable performance.

Maximizing Your Home Solar Investment: Upgrade to SunPower

Oahu Home with SunPower Solar System

Are you a Net Energy Metering (NEM) customer with aging Samsung, Solarworld, or LG PV modules? If your solar system is a decade old, it’s time to discover the exciting possibilities of upgrading to a SunPower solar system. At SunPower by Eco Solar, we’ve proudly been Oahu’s leading home solar experts since 2008 and Hawaii’s only SunPower Master Dealer. Our System Designers and in-house installation team – with over 50 years of combined solar expertise – have transformed the energy landscape for more than 3,000 happy homeowners.

Unlocking Greater Potential with SunPower Solar Systems:

As technology advances and households change, it’s not uncommon for clients to reassess their requirements and find they need more power. One way to address this is by adding to your existing NEM PV system with SunPower modules and a Tesla Powerwall – a proven combo for maximizing savings. But there may be an even better option. Instead of just adding on, consider replacing your aging system with a new SunPower Solar system. This not only provides the extra power you need but also allows for a 1KW system size increase, requires no batteries, and your NEM status remains secure. This approach also sets you up for long-term savings and efficiency, giving your home’s power a significant upgrade!

Seamless Integration with Roof Upgrades:

Homes typically need new roofs every 20-25 years, making it an ideal time to think about upgrading your solar system. Why? When you replace an aging roof, the PV panels have to come off. The interesting part is that the cost of removing and reinstalling your existing PV system is surprisingly close to the cost of getting a completely new SunPower solar system – especially when you consider tax credits, rebates, and state incentives. So, if a new roof is on the horizon, why not consider a solar upgrade too? It’s a smart move that aligns with the natural lifecycle of your home.

Choosing SunPower Solar: Unmatched Performance and Expertise:

SunPower by Eco Solar stands out as the go-to choice for home solar systems and PV system replacements. Our high-performing SunPower modules not only breathe new life into your solar setup but also optimize your energy production. With our team of seasoned System Designers, we strategically place these modules on the best-yielding roof planes, ensuring maximum efficiency.

Why Choose SunPower by Eco Solar?

A Brighter Future:

Over the years, early solar adopters have not only recouped their initial investments but potentially done so 2-3 times over. Replacing an aging system with a new SunPower Solar system goes beyond minimizing HECO bills; it’s a strategic move towards upgrading to the latest technology and ensuring continued efficiency. At SunPower by Eco Solar, we’re here to guide you through this seamless transition, offering unmatched performance, expertise, and a commitment to a sustainable and cost-effective energy solution. Contact our dedicated team of System Designers today to maximize your home solar investment for years to come. Your path to a brighter, more efficient future is with SunPower by Eco Solar.

Save with the Battery Bonus Program

Updated: October 30, 2023

Application Period

On Oahu, applications for the HECO Battery Bonus Program will be accepted until the total enrolled SDP capacity reaches 40MW or until the start date of the Bring Your Own Device Programs, whichever comes first. (As of October 1st, 31.7 MW are enrolled.) Contact a SunPower by Eco Solar System Designer today to get started.

Save with the HECO Battery Bonus Program: 

More reasons why the best solution for your home is a Solar plus Battery system.

Hawaiian Electric (HECO) has exciting news for customers in Oahu: receive a cash incentive to add energy storage to a new or existing rooftop solar system. This program was created to help Hawaii move towards its goal of 100% clean energy by 2045. 

Incentives include:

  • A one-time check up to $850 per kilowatt (kW) committed for those accepted for the first 15 megawatts (MW) on Oahu. $750 per kW for the next 15 MW and $500 per kW for the last 20 MW.
  • A monthly capacity bill credit at $5 per kW per month of committed capacity for 10 years.
  • A monthly energy bill credit non-Net Energy Metering (NEM) program customers for three years.

Hawaiian Electric is looking to reduce power on the grid during peak demand periods, and these cash incentives provide an easy way for you and the company to save money, reduce pollution, and ensure all Hawaii residents have access to the electricity we need – it’s a true win-win for all! 

How the Hawaiian Electric Battery Bonus Program works

The program allows for homeowners with existing Solar systems installed after July 1, 2021

and new Solar systems to add energy storage to participate. Those who sign up are asked to deliver a committed capacity every day for 10 years for two hours during peak electric times between 6 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. Even with these requirements, the incentives are enough to pay for the cost of owning the battery, and customers can commit any amount of kW that their battery can handle (your incentive money is based on how many kW you can commit to). 

SunPower Eco Solar Hawaii explains Battery Bonus benefits for existing and new customers

“After we help homeowners go solar, we find that their daily habits change. They start to use more electricity. Maybe they’ve added air conditioning, or have additional family members in their home, or purchased a new electric car. Until recently, homeowners were prohibited from adding on to their solar system.

HECO’s Battery Bonus Program is really exciting because we can get the customer back to zero with their bills! These incentives mean the system pays for itself in half the time.” says Ben Parish, President/Owner of SunPower by Eco Solar Hawaii. 

How to get your Oahu Battery Bonus

If you’re ready to add onto your solar investment and save even more while protecting our planet, work with SunPower by Eco Solar to install or upgrade your solar system. Your Contractor Partner will apply for your permits, install and configure the battery. They’ll need to show that your building panels were submitted to lock in your payment. Your Eco Solar system designer can also advise you on the capacity level that makes sense for your battery to maintain throughout the program. You’ll also need to fill out and submit a W-9 form, since these upfront incentive payments do count as income and HECO will report information about them to the IRS. 

Once your system is up and running, we will need to supply seven days’ worth of operational data to HECO. Once it’s approved, you can expect your incentive within thirty days!  

Parish is excited about the program and its financial and climate benefits for Oahu customers. “It’s really a win-win for all – especially for existing Solar customers and homeowners that want to go Solar. The best energy saving solution is a Solar plus Battery system and these incentives make it easy to save and see your return on your investment even faster!”

Get your Oahu Battery Bonus Now

Don’t delay on getting this great deal for yourself – The battery bonus will only be available for a limited time – until the total enrolled capacity reaches 50 megawatts, or until June 20, 2023. 

Ready to save even more on your Solar System with the Battery Bonus Program? Contact SunPower by Eco Solar today to get started.
