ENERGY STAR® Appliances
Shopping for new appliances? Get money back and save on electricity costs with Hawaii Energy’s ENERGY STAR® rebates.
ENERGY STAR® appliances exceed federal requirements for energy efficiency and use 10% to 50% less energy than standard models. They may be more expensive than other models, but Hawaii Energy rebates will help you pay for very efficient appliances that will keep on saving you dollars on your electric bill for many years to come.
ENERGY STAR® appliances are available at most major retailers.
- Check qualified brands and models at www.energystar.gov and look for the blue ENERGY STAR® label on the appliance and/or the packaging.
- Check the yellow EnergyGuide sticker found on major appliances to help you compare operating costs of different models.

An average family washes 400 loads of laundry a year! Save energy and water when you buy an ENERGY STAR® front- or top-loading clothes washer, which uses 20% to 35% less energy and 15 to 22 gallons less water per load compared to a standard full-size machine. Clothes washers must have an MEF of 2.2 or greater to ensure that these are the most efficient types with higher energy and water savings.

If your refrigerator is more than 10 years old, you can replace it and pay for your new ENERGY STAR® model within a couple of years through your energy savings and a Hawaii Energy rebate. Refrigerators that are more than 10 years old can be two to three times more expensive to operate than a new ENERGY STAR® qualified model.
