Hawaii Gas Serves the Entire State
Since 1904 Hawaii Gas has been the only franchised gas utility in the State of Hawai'i. Since this time, we have installed gas pipeline infrastructure, built bulk storage facilities with access to the harbor and developed a highly skilled workforce on every major island to serve the people of Hawai'i. Gas is now a critical part of our fuel mix in Hawai'i providing a cleaner and lower cost alternative for residential, commercial and industrial customers.
We are clean, green energy.
Gas is the most efficient source of heat energy and a cleaner burning fossil fuel making it the perfect bridge to Hawaii’s clean energy future.
We are proud to be local.
It's appropriate that Hawai'i is part of our new name. After all, we were founded in Hawai'i and have been serving the Islands for more than 100 years.
We are friendly, dependable service.
The same friendly, knowledgeable and helpful service that you've come to expect from us will continue under our new name.
Current Gas Operations
Gas is a critical source of energy for nearly every major market segment in Hawaii including residential customers, military facilities, hotels and restaurants, state and county government, agriculture and more. Even when the lights go out, gas stays on, providing energy for a variety of applications.
On Oahu SNG (synthetic natural gas) is distributed through approximately 1,000 miles of pipeline to nearly 28,000 residential, commercial and industrial customers. Another 40,000 customers who are located away from the SNG pipeline distribution system on O'ahu and on Neighbor Islands are supplied with propane.
Gas is more efficient, less expensive and cleaner than coal and oil-fired electricity. Gas delivers three times more energy to the end user as compared to electricity to perform the same task, making it the hands-down winner in energy efficiency. This means we can reduce the amount of oil imported to Hawai'i when we replace coal and oil-fired electricity with gas by a factor of three. It also emits 30% less carbon dioxide than coal and oil-fired electricity.
