100% Renewable Energy for Hawaii
on 11 May 2015
With a newly passed bill, Hawaii may soon become the first American state to generate all of its energy through renewable resources. Hawaii currently imports 93% of all of its energy through fossil fuels, making its utilities' costs among the highest in the nation. The new bill projects 100% energy independence for the state by 2045, as it plans to produce clean energy through an array of sources including hydroelectric, biomass, geothermal and solar sources—eliminating fossil fuels altogether.
