Tell me about the technology.

Pono Home offers a comprehensive greening service that recommends and implements steps toward a more energy and water efficient home. In addition to providing a comprehensive energy and sustainability audit, Pono Home handles the implementation of efficiency improvements. Results include reduced water consumption, energy consumption, and income spent on utility bills. The average payback period of Pono Home’s Hawaii customer base is 12 months or less.

What should I know about their EEx Demonstration Project?

Pono Home worked Hawaii Energy to service over 500 low income residents, elderly residents, and renters to upgrade their units with energy and water efficient hardware. The results of their project can be found on Cleantechnica.

The Hawaii-based company graduated from Energy Excelerator’s Go-to-market Track in 2014 where they did a customer discovery pilot project with Forest City’s military housing.
