Initiative Guides Hawaii to the Path of Energy Independence

With 90 percent of its energy coming from oil, Hawaii is the most oil-dependent state in the nation. The Hawaii Clean Energy Initiative is an ambitious plan to reverse that. Outlining a combination of increased energy efficiency and renewable energy sources the HCEI maps out a path toward achieving the state’s goal of meeting at least 70 percent of its energy needs from clean energy by 2030.
