Hawaiian Electric is Working for You!
Hawaiian Electric wants Building Industry Association members to know the company is still on the job – even as the state grapples with the coronavirus pandemic. During this time, the utility is adjusting its operations to reduce potential spread of the coronavirus such as postponing less urgent repair and maintenance work, and closing walk-in customer payment centers at least through April 30. 

None of these operational changes will interrupt electric service to businesses that count on the vital service Hawaiian Electric provides.
