Performance Based Regulation (PBR)

The Hawaii Public Utilities Commission (“PUC”) has opened a proceeding to investigate performance-based regulation for the Hawaiian Electric Companies. Performance-based regulation (“PBR”) includes a set of alternative regulatory mechanisms intended to focus utilities on performance and desired outcomes, such as increased renewable energy, lower cost, and improved customer service.

Staff Proposal

Hawaii Public Utilities Commission (PUC) staff issued a proposal to adopt updated performance-based utility regulations to encourage the Hawaiian Electric Companies to cost-effectively achieve Hawaii’s energy goals and deliver savings to customers.

Docket parties may file Statements of Position commenting on the Staff Proposal by March 8, 2019.
