Who wants a free home energy kit? We’re talking a low-flow shower head, LED bulb, CFL bulb and faucet aerator. Or for just $10, you can get a home energy kit with a “Smart” powerstrip and two LED bulbs.
The kits are part of a campaign from Hawaii Energy–a ratepayer funded conservation program for the Big Island, Maui, Oahu, Molokai and Lanai–to encourage residents to use their utilities more efficiently.
“For a limited-time, Hawaii Energy is offering energy-saving kits to residential electric utility customers in Hawaii, Honolulu and Maui counties,” states the Hawaii Energy website promoting the kits. “The energy-saving products in these kits will not only help you reduce your home’s energy usage right away, but you could save up to $160 annually on your electric bill just by installing and using the items in the kits!”
According to Hawaii Energy, the free kit will save a household 358 kilowatt hours over the course of a year ($115 based on $0.32/kWh). The $10 kit will save a family an additional 143 kilowatt hours annually ($46 based on $0.32/kWh).
To get the kits, go to Hawaiienergy.com/kits and enter your zip code and mailing address into the form.
