Pono Home won acclaim as part of the 15 companies chosen by the clean Tech Incubator known as the Energy Excelerator as one of the companies most likely to help move the world away from fossil fuels, starting in Hawaii. The Energy Excelerator is funded in part by a grant from the Department of Naval Research.

Pono Home’s early work owes much of its success to participation in this program. We are required to make public the following statements:

This website, the Green Living Ideas book, and the development of our initial software are based upon work supported by the Department of Energy, the Department of Defense, and the Office of Naval Research, who have all funded the Energy Excelerator.
