Leidos to run Hawaii PUC energy efficiency program

Leidos Engineering

Leidos, an infrastructure, national security and health solutions company, was awarded a single-award, prime contract by the Hawaii Public Utilities Commission to administer the Hawaii Energy conservation and energy efficiency program. The contract has a three-year base period worth $85 million followed by two successive three-year extensions.

Under the new contract, Leidos will continue to oversee design and implementation of a wide range of newly developed and traditional commercial and residential rebate offers, as well as numerous training and educational initiatives for a clean energy future. Leidos has administered the electric ratepayer-funded Hawaii Energy program since 2009.

The program serves Hawaii, Honolulu and Maui counties in the state of Hawaii under the direction of the Hawaii PUC. The program was recently recognized as a 2016 Project of the Year by Environmental Leader magazine.  

Energy efficiency plays a key part in achieving the state's goal of achieving a 100 percent renewable energy portfolio standard by 2045. The Hawaii Energy program uses a portfolio of financial incentives, education and training opportunities, and collaboration with key community organizations and leaders.

In the last six years, energy-saving efforts of program participants have resulted in more than $1 billion in electric bill savings. In the last program year alone, tens of thousands of residents and businesses helped to achieve an estimated $443 million in lifetime electric bill savings or 1.5 billion kWh, equal to eliminating 2.2 million barrels of oil or 1.3 million tons of greenhouse gas emissions.
