Go Green with Paperless Billing
There are lots of reasons to go paperless: it's convenient, no more writing and mailing checks, it saves time and it's environmentally friendly, eliminating the need for paper, printing, and delivery. Going paperless requires setting up an online account which takes about five minutes. The next step is to request paperless billing, and then you can decide how to make payments without having to mail in a check every month.
By signing up, you'll also help us reduce our carbon footprint and be eligible to receive a Project Footprint reward*. We'll send you an email within two weeks asking you to choose your free gift: a stainless steel water bottle or a t-shirt made from 100% recycled materials.
* Project Footprint rewards are available only while supplies last. Hawaiian Electric may end the program or issuance of rewards at any time. Rewards will only be sent to addresses within our service territories and are limited to one (1) per address for each eligible action.

Rewards may not be available for individuals who have previously asked not to be contacted by Hawaiian Electric or who have unsubscribed from or opted out of our marketing emails. If you do not receive an email confirming your reward eligibility within two (2) weeks, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
