Find out how easy it is to go solar with Sunrun and save on your HI electric bill.
Living in paradise is truly extraordinary, yet there’s no denying that Hawaiian life can be rather expensive, too. Just the cost of electricity alone is more than twice the national average1 — the highest residential electricity prices in the county!2 Luckily, “The Aloha State” also happens to be a paradise for solar energy, which means homeowners like you could save thousands by making the switch with a company like Sunrun.
As the largest home solar provider in the U.S., we have 10+ years of experience hiring locally and helping Americans across 22 states enjoy a cleaner, more affordable, and renewable energy future.
