HONOLULU, Hawaii— July 26, 2014

Energy Industries Corporation (Energy Industries) Hawaii’s leading energy efficiency company is celebrating 20 years of successfully helping Hawaii’s businesses save money by saving energy.

At the age of 19, Darren T. Kimura founded Energy Industries in 1994.  Originally named Energy Conservation and Management Hawaii, the company provided energy efficient lighting solutions for Hilo businesses.  In 1995, he moved its corporate offices to Honolulu and expanded to Maui and Kauai.  During this time the company worked on designing and installing energy efficient lighting systems for the State of Hawaii Airports, Community Colleges and numerous commercial businesses.

In 1998, Kimura and Duane Ashimine founded Pacific Energy Services Company, an energy technology business which designed and installed some of Hawaii’s most novel energy systems that included fuel cells, cogeneration, thermal ice energy cooling, commercial scaled photovoltaic and solar thermal hot water systems.

In 2005 the company acquired Quantum Lighting of Spokane, WA, Quantum Energy of Seattle, WA and Energy Distribution of San Francisco, CA and combined Pacific Energy Services Company under one brand called Energy Industries Corporation.  Under Energy Industries Corporation the business expanded nationally.

Over the last two decades, Energy Industries has performed work for over 4,000 business including Hawaii marquee companies such as First Hawaiian Bank, Hawaiian Host and Kuakini Health System, major consumer brands including Kendall-Jackson, and  national installations for clients such as Boeing, FedEx and AutoNation.  With its diversified client base, Energy Industries performed work across the United States, Guam, Palau, Philippines and Japan.

“Born and raised in Hawaii, it was always a goal of mine to help Hawaii’s businesses be more efficient to compete with mainland companies.  To serve clients on a national stage seemed like nothing more than a faraway dream” said Darren T. Kimura, founder “I’m truly amazed at what our incredible people have done over the past 20 years.  To see that today we’ve become one of the go-to companies for energy knowledge nationally is simply awesome”.

Over the course of its work, Energy Industries has accumulated numerous awards and distinctions including Hawaiian Electric’s Trade Ally of the Year, National Service Firm of the Year by the Small Business Administration, Technology Company of the Year, and recipient of numerous energy awards from Pacific Gas and Electric and Avista Utilities.

To celebrate its 20th year anniversary, the company is unveiling its new Corporate Logo, and a new division called Energy Industries Corporation Capital or EIC Capital.  Under EIC Capital, Energy Industries will provide 100% financing for qualifying energy efficiency clients. Under a structure know as “Shared Savings Program”, clients will use a portion of their energy savings to pay for the project requiring zero up front capital.  The savings are also guaranteed to eliminate risk for the end customer.

“We want everyone to achieve energy efficiency and EIC Capital enables this requiring zero upfront cost to reduce operating cost which enhances the bottom-line profitability” says Duane Ashimine, President of Energy Industries.  “EIC Capital’s Shared Savings Program allows clients to acquire new energy technologies such as LED lighting, HVAC chillers and solar panels from the energy they save.”
