Hawaiian Electric Companies Introduce Ohana Energy Gift Program

The Hawaiian Electric Companies today introduced their new Ohana Energy Gift Program, a thoughtful and practical way for customers to give the gift of energy to their friends and family or to help others in need.


The program allows customers of Hawaiian Electric, Maui Electric and Hawaii Electric Light to make payments toward a designated recipient’s electric account. The recipient will receive an acknowledgement letter once the gift amount has been applied to his or her account.

“In Hawaii, we’re blessed to live in a very supportive and generous community. We created this program because over the years we’ve received many requests from our customers for this kind of service,” said Jim Alberts, Hawaiian Electric senior vice president for customer service.

Gift givers will receive a confirmation letter once the designated recipient’s account information has been verified and the gift amount has been applied. Ohana Energy Gifts are not tax deductible donations.

The gifts may be anonymous, or the gift giver may choose to also send a special acknowledgement card with a personalized message.

If a recipient is not designated, the energy gift will be given to individuals and families in need. Application forms may be downloaded from the Hawaiian Electric, Maui Electric and Hawaii Electric Light websites or picked up from any of the companies’ customer service centers.
