Aloha!

Remember, HELCO killed Solar Retail Rate Net Metering back in Oct. 2015. I suspect Richard is grandfathered in on the old program that fed back to the grid at Retail Rate credits while Jeff is stuck with the CGS, so his off-solar draw is a lot more expensive than the excess he puts in during the day.

Jeff N., you might want to look into a Tesla PowerWall2 - 14kWh for $7K. Of course, still need to do the math and determine whether or not the TCO is in your favor. Last I heard, SolarCity (owned by Tesla) is the only installer of PowerWalls in Hawaii, so not much choice there.
