What economic and environmental benefits can we expect when Hawaii’s energy needs are met through locally produced clean energy?
Is it possible for all ground and marine transportation to be electrified or powered by renewable hydrogen or renewable biofuels?
Of Hawaii’s top 250 companies, five are solar contractors that generated $140 million in 2015 and are the economic drivers of several thousand local jobs.
