Let’s dive into Matt L.’s journey and discover how Independent Energy Hawaii transformed his solar dreams into reality.

The Customer’s Experience

Matt L., a resident of Mililani, had long aspired to harness the power of the sun to meet his energy needs. However, like many potential solar adopters, he had concerns and questions about the process. After conducting thorough research and speaking with representatives from various solar companies, he decided to take the plunge.

The Independent Energy Solution

Matt’s journey took a remarkable turn when he crossed paths with Desta, one of our solar experts at Independent Energy Hawaii. Desta left a lasting impression on Matt. From their initial meeting to the final agreement execution with HECO, Matt found the Independent Energy team, including James, Sean, Soren, and others, to be not just helpful but truly fantastic.

At Independent Energy Hawaii, we take pride in providing tailored solutions that address our customers’ unique needs. Matt’s case was no exception. We offered him a comprehensive PV and battery system that would not only meet his energy requirements but also provide long-term cost savings and environmental benefits.

The Results

The success of Matt’s solar project is a testament to our commitment to delivering exceptional solar solutions. With the Enphase system installed by Independent Energy Hawaii, Matt experienced a significant improvement in his energy efficiency. This system not only reduced his energy bills but also contributed to a cleaner and greener environment.

Matt’s satisfaction is best expressed in his own words: “We couldn’t be more pleased with the excellent quality of Independent’s work and the very high-performance value of the Enphase system that Independent Energy installed.”


Matt L.’s review speaks volumes about his positive experience with Independent Energy Hawaii:

 “I joined Yelp just so I could add this review because my wife and I are so impressed with the work that Independent Energy did installing and setting up our PV and battery system. I’ve wanted to get a good system for a very long time, and over the years, I spoke with reps from many different companies. Desta is hands down the best. He was patient, personable, knowledgeable, and extremely helpful. From the first meeting, through installation two months later, and right up to HECO’s final execution of the agreement a couple of weeks ago, James, Desta, Sean, Soren, and all the rest of the team were fantastic. We couldn’t be more pleased with the excellent quality of Independent’s work and the very high performance value of the Enphase system that Independent Energy installed.”

Status: The program is capped at 50 megawatts (MW), as of right now we are at 6.2 MW.

  • Currently customers who are accepted into the program will receive $850 per kilowatt (kW).
  • After the first 15 MW is filled, the next 15 MW of committed capacity will receive $750 per kW.
  • After the next 15 MW is used the last 20 MW of committed capacity will receive $500 per kW.

Customers that are not currently enrolled in the company’s Net Energy Metering (NEM) Program will receive a fixed monthly bill credit for energy exported to the grid for three years. The credit is an amount equivalent to the respective retail rate for electricity exported during the two-hour period. After these three years are completed any underlying interconnection tariff export rates, if any, will apply.

Customers who wish to participate with an existing solar system and are presently enrolled in a customer energy program (such as Net Energy Metering, and Grid Supply or others) will continue to receive full benefits from these programs. Up to 5 kW of new panels may be added under existing programs. There is no limit on the size of an individual customer’s battery.

If you would like to add more than 5 kW of additional capacity of PV, it is possible as long as you still adhere to a 2:1 PV to battery output ratio. These apply to any interconnection tariff customers!


“We wholeheartedly recommend Independent Energy Hawaii for all your solar photovoltaic system needs. From our initial conversations with Desta to the final inspection with James, every interaction was extraordinarily positive. The team’s knowledge, honesty, and professionalism was exceptional. The whole process was done efficiently and reliably and we couldn’t be more appreciative. Every member of the team was professional, competent, and respectful in their dealings with us.”

“Easily the most professional crew I ever had the pleasure of doing business with, and I never felt alone or in the dark thanks to Desta. He helped me with all my questions and I loved the fact that he was just a phone call away. Dedication to something like that is just hard to find nowadays. This company was a breath of fresh air for me and I wish I could do such an awesome crew justice with such a simple review. 10/10″

“Desta, Adam, Mike, Garrison and the rest of the Independent Energy Team are amazing. They were knowledgeable, responsive and helpful throughout our whole solar process. When issues came up (as they always do with projects), they went the extra mile to make sure everything worked properly.
Our panels and battery were installed on time as promised and are working great – just got our first ever $26 HECO bill!
This company cares about helping people and doing quality work, which is very rare these days. Hands down the best experience I’ve had with a company for home improvement/renovations. Highly recommend!”
