Hawaii to Hit 100% Renewable Energy by 2045

Electric companies in Hawaii propose cleaner path to 100 percent clean energy

With up to $3.7 billion estimated customer savings and 8 million fewer barrels of oil imported annually (starting in 2021) greenhouse gas emissions will drop in Hawaii by four million tons per year.

Many Hawaiians believe that the state can hit that goal by 2045 because the islands are renewable energy leaders now, with many solar, wind, and even some experimental OTEC (Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion) power generation stations.Continue reading Hawaii to Hit 100% Renewable Energy by 2045
