Hawaii Energy Connection is a locally owned and managed company that is nationally recognized. INC Magazine ranked us 16th in the nation's energy sector in 2012 as a Top 500 honoree. The award winning company was founded by Managing Partners Steve Godmere and Chris DeBone, who inspire a company culture of hard work, customer-focused service, safety, and attention to detail. The result is a skilled team of employees dedicated to providing competitively priced PV systems, engineered with top-tier equipment and backed by superior customer service. This embedded culture is key in distinguishing us from our competitors—and results in an unprecedented percentage of business derived from referrals.
We have a solid reputation as a leading commercial and residential solar contractor in Hawaii. We are recognized as an industry leader—nationwide—in providing the latest proven technological solutions. Among our more efficient installations are those that include micro-inverters. They add significantly more productive value to PV systems with a more accurate production prediction and optimized financial terms and ultimately a stunning ROI (return on investment).
Our solar solutions are designed to suit and are delivered on schedule and within budget. Our PV systems are designed for exceptional value, maximum productivity, and worry-free operation. We employ dedicated project managers to assure a streamlined customer-centric process. We use exhaustive system metrics to quantify efficiency and performance. Our PV systems are turn-key with an end-to-end advantage: design and engineering, partnered integrated financing and local PPA or FIT options, top-tier component procurement, permitting, logistics and staging, installation and integration, system monitoring training and tech support, backed by dedicated local service and support.
We have installed complex interconnections and tightly integrated tens-of-thousands of modules. We have experience in providing solar solutions for all islands, engineered for all Hawaii roof types, with the ability to accommodate specialized or challenging installations. We work around customer-specific work schedules and accommodate site specific logistics. Each project is properly permitted and supervised. We are OSHA certified and enforce a safety plan for every individual installation and we are fully licensed, insured and bondable.
Our solar solutions integrate top-tier equipment from world-class, bankable manufacturers offering industry-leading warranties. Each system is designed around your site specifics, budget and tax credit appetite. We put quality first, giving you PV systems at a competitive price for a balance of maximum financial return and long term system production. Integrity is paramount in everything we do. We use unbiased 3rd-party engineering firms to review project structural and electrical plans, ensuring the highest quality, successful installations that meet or exceed all local building, electrical and structural codes.
We’ve formed partnerships with local lending institutions and financial groups to provide integrated financing, ready capital and no-cost alternatives such as local PPA and FIT options, direct to our commercial customers. We strive to make solar affordable for non-profit organizations, all size businesses, building and land own- ers, churches, schools and communities.
Integrated financing can make adopting solar easier with a simple, efficient and stress-free turn-key process. We even have options that will allow you to eliminate up-front cost and the need for capital outlay.
We handle every aspect of your project from design to post-install support, freeing up your executive team and stakeholders. We are knowledgeable and current on available incentives and tax credits so you can be assured you are getting the maximum benefits from your PV system.
