Honolulu is Hawaii’s capital, its largest city — and a true melting pot of cultures. It also has some of the most expensive utility rates in the U.S. In fact, Honolulu residents pay almost 200% more for their electricity compared to Americans living in other states.1
But there’s a bright side, too! The Aloha State is one of the top states in the nation to go solar. See, Hawaii’s commitment to setting bold, clean energy goals include achieving the nation’s first-ever 100% renewable portfolio standards (RPS) by the year 2045.2 So if you want to join your state’s astounding carbon-free movement, Sunrun is here to guide you every step of the way.
