Hawaii Legislature recently approved a bill, House Bill 623, that states that by the year 2045, 100% of the states electricity will come from renewable resources. Last year, approximately 22% of Hawaii's energy is supplied by green energy. Governor David Ige can reject or pass the bill by May 15. If the bill is not rejected it will automatically become the law. If the bill becomes a law, Hawaii will be the first state in the country to commit to a 100% renewable energy goal.
Hawaii Legislature also passed a bill, House Bill 1509, which states the University of Hawaii system will have a goal to run on 100% renewable energy by the year 2035. This will make the University of Hawaii the first university in the country to have such a goal to run 100% on renewable energy.
