HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The 11th annual Hawaiian Electric Clean Energy Fair will be held on Saturday, October 4, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Kahala Mall near the Macy's wing. The event is co-sponsored by Kanu Hawai'i and the Department of Business, Economic Development & Tourism (DBEDT), and kicks off Energy Action Month in October to celebrate the efforts and accomplishments of businesses and organizations paving the way for a sustainable, clean energy future for Hawai'i.
This year's featured guest entertainers are Na Hoku Hanohano award-winning group Waipuna and Electric Ed of Mad Science Hawai'i.
The Clean Energy Fair brings together organizations and businesses involved in resource conservation, energy efficiency and clean energy initiatives. This free event offers families and individuals an opportunity to get the latest information in renewable energy, electric vehicles, solar and PV installations, and energy rebates.
The festivities will open with a performance by Electric Ed of Mad Science Hawai'i. At noon, Na Hoku Hanohano award winning group Waipuna takes the stage to perform, ending with a special keiki hula performance at 1:30 p.m. by Ka Pa Hula O Kauanoe O Wa'ahila.
In addition, Hawaiian Electric's job booth will highlight available career opportunities at the company. Human Resources specialists will be available throughout the day to answer questions from interested job seekers. Energy games and contests will be held between the live music performances, including prize drawings for an iPad mini and a portable solar powered generator.
To enter the drawings, interested participants may pick up an Energy Celebrate Energy Action Month at Hawaiian Electric's 2014 Clean Energy Fair Page Passport at any fair booth, visit participating booths -- including the electric vehicle display -- for a stamp, and drop the completed passport at the entry box at Hawaiian Electric's booth.
