Governor David Ige
Today I signed four bills that will advance Hawaiʻi’s clean energy economy. Last week’s US Supreme Court decision limiting the federal government’s ability to fight climate change underscores why it is so important for states to act and lead by example. For Hawaiʻi, it is critical that we transition to a clean energy economy as quickly as practicable, and the four bills I signed today will help ensure that Hawaiʻi continues to move forward as a national and global leader on sustainability. 1. House Bill 1800 is a major step forward for Hawaiʻi in becoming a clean energy economy. By setting an interim target for 2030 to be at least 50% below 2005 emissions, Hawaiʻi continues to set targets based on the science and in alignment with the US and global commitments to act. 2. House Bill 1801 moves state government forward to lead by example on reducing energy costs by being more efficient. At a time when oil prices are going up, taking action to reduce electricity use in government saves everyone more money. 3. House Bill 2089 changes the way we calculate our progress on switching to renewable energy. Up until now, it was based on sales, but with HB 2089, we will focus on actual generation so that 100% means 100%. 4. Senate Bill 2570 provides incentives to further hydrogen vehicles on the road. This is especially important for medium- and heavy-duty vehicles like trucks and semis and other emerging innovative transportation technologies. Achieving our clean energy transformation goals is something that has been very important to my administration. These four measures will be critical in our efforts to transition the state away from imported fuels and towards renewable, local and secure sources of affordable energy. ... See MoreSee Less
