Nonres New Construction

Commercial & Industrial New Construction Program, implemented by Hawaiian Electric Company, encourages developers of C&I facilities to install energy-efficient equipment at the time of construction. Accordingly, new construction participants are offered direct cash incentives for energy conservation measures that are not normally implemented. Design assistance is also offered to building designers as a program marketing and delivery mechanism. The purpose of design assistance is to influence customers during the design phase of new construction projects by providing funding for additional engineering studies, either by the customerís design team or by a third party engineer. To effectively target the new construction market, utility representatives take advantage of existing contacts with builders, architects, and engineers in an attempt to become more involved early in the design phase.
