EnerKnol’s Visual Primer – Hawaii Regulators Approve HECO’s 100 Percent Renewables Plan

The Hawaii Public Utilities Commission has accepted the Hawaiian Electric Companies' near-term action plan towards meeting the state’s target of 100 percent renewables by 2045. California’s proposal to match Hawaii's goal has garnered more attention given the complexity of implementing such goals in a large and diverse economy. As states increase their renewable portfolio standards, utilities will have to be more proactive in charting paths of compliance. Hawaii may offer some early lessons for other states but California's experience could be more applicable.
