Hawaii Wants To Be The First State To Run Entirely On Renewable Energy

If all goes according to plan, 100% of Hawaii's electricity will be generated by renewable sources by 2045 — which would make it the first U.S. state to take a plunge of this magnitude. The bill was passed by the Hawaii Legislature last week, and now awaits Governor David Ige's approval.

Climate Central has more:

It's a pretty ambitious goal but Hawaiian officials believe they really can get it done by 2045. And things are looking good so far. The state is apparently already further along than expected toward its goal of becoming 40% renewable by 2030.

Let's hope the rest of the country takes a page (or five) out of Hawaii's book.
