Inspired by an enlightened King, Hawaii’s story of electricity is regal, transformative and a leading contributor to the creation of our modern Hawaii. And it continues to be a story of innovation, connectivity and progressive thinking.
For more than 100 years, Hawaiian Electric Company has provided the energy that has fueled the islands’ development from a Hawaiian kingdom to a modern state. Hawaiian Electric Company, and its subsidiaries, Maui Electric Company, and Hawaii Electric Light Company, serves 95% of the state’s 1.4 million residents on the islands of Oahu, Maui, Hawaii Island, Lanai and Molokai.
Since 1891, we have been entrusted to power these islands and empower its citizens – a responsibility that has been both our mission and our honor.
