In an effort to help address homelessness in Hawaiʻi, community leaders in both the public and private sectors have been creating unique partnerships that bring together each individual partner’s resources to build safe and sustainable housing for families in need. Hawaiʻi Gas is proud to be one of these partners by volunteering to provide energy solutions and fuel for several initiatives on Oʻahu.
Hawai’i Gas was one of the project partners that played a critical role in designing a cost-effective, reliable and resilient energy system for Kahauiki Village, a long-term transitional housing community in Honolulu. Working together with other industry partners, Hawaiʻi Gas was able to create a comprehensive and resilient energy package to ensure residents have an affordable, environmentally friendly, reliable and safe energy system. “Kahauiki Village includes a number of energy sources," said Brian Yee, Hawaiʻi Gas project manager. "Each housing unit has solar thermal for hot water, gas water heater backup, gas for cooking, a PV farm with battery storage, and as a backup to the village’s energy supply, a propane powered generator. Having multiple energy sources creates resiliency for the entire community," Yee added.
Another project being developed for residents experiencing persistent homelessness is Kalaeloa Kauhale located in Kalaeloa, Oʻahu. Headed by HomeAid Hawaiʻi, a non-profit partnership comprised of developers and building industry leaders, Kalaeloa Kauhale is a “tiny homes” concept that consists of individual small dwellings with shared cooking and cleaning facilities. Hawaiʻi Gas has been working with developers and planners on providing gas line installation and metering for the community. When completed, Kalaeloa Kauhale will be able to house 36 individuals or small families.
