Energy

As If You Really Need More Reasons To Like Hawaii

Hawaii just signed a new clean energy law

House Bill 623, one of the measures signed into law by Governor Ige, focuses on what's being called the most aggressive clean energy goal in the country: Hawaii seeks to become completely energy self-sustaining, using 100 percent renewable sources, by 2045.

Hawaii already spends $5 billion on foreign oil and imports 40 million barrels of oil every year for energy production.

Efforts to change this spending have been in the works. There are already laws in place to make the state 30% self-sustainable in 5 years and 70% self-sustainable by 2030.

These new laws will help support local energy production. The state will be looking for local solar farms, wind farms, and exploring other local alternative energy sources.

These local energy sources will reduce the cost of energy that residents already spend, which is between 2 and 3 times the national average for electricity.

As a state that only produces 0.4% of the country's carbon emissions but feels the impacts of the rest of the country's pollution, this law will be a great incentive for the rest of the country's carbon reduction efforts!
