The Hawaii state legislature sent a bill to the governor’s desk this week which means that all electricity provided by the electric companies would have to come from renewables by 2045. Hawaii would achieve the biggest energy turnaround in the USA, going from 90 percent dependence on expensive imported fossil fuels to 100 percent clean energy. The Governor has until May 15 to veto or sign the bill. If he fails to act by then, the bill will automatically become law.
