Hawaii Island CGS Plus capacity dwindling

Hawaiian Electric’s Customer Grid Supply Plus (CGS Plus) program has capacity limits that vary by island. The original capacity for HELCO was 7 MW. The CGS Plus+ program will remain open until the installed capacity is reached. Currently the CGS Plus available capacity is 58% or about 4 MW. The benefits of CGS Plus are that you earn credits for energy you export and those credits can be applied to future months up to your one year true-up period. Once CGS Plus is gone, we are not sure what HELCO will offer next.
