Aloha! The State of Hawaii has a bold energy agenda – achieve 70% clean energy by the year 2030. Along with reducing our islands’ dependency on fossil fuels and increasing efficiency measures, the clean energy plan is also contributing to the state’s economic growth.
Because Hawaii is committed to re-powering the clean energy market, we have embraced bold solutions that will help develop this competitive industry making Hawaii one of the leaders in the clean energy race.
The Hawaii State Energy Office is leading the charge and has embarked on a strategic plan to position Hawaii as a proving ground for clean energy technologies and accelerate our transformation to a clean energy economy.
Self-Help Energy Suite
The Hawaii State Energy Office has created the Self-Help Energy Suite of tools to advance high impact, clean energy solutions.
Renewable EnerGIS Map
This tool provides renewable energy resource and site information for specific Hawaii locations. It is intended to help landowners, developers, and policy makers understand the renewable energy potential of sites statewide.
Renewable Energy Permitting Wizard
The Renewable Energy Permitting Wizard tool was developed to help those proposing renewable energy projects understand the county, state, and federal permits that may be required for their individual project. This tool works for projects ranging in size from residential solar installations to large utility-scale facilities.
|Notice: The Hawaii State Energy Office is currently upgrading the functionality and content of the Renewable Energy Permitting Wizard. Upgrades will include additional permits, updated agency processing information, additional guidance to help users know whether a certain permit is required for their project(s), and increased security and usability features. Version 2 of the Permitting Wizard will also be developed in an open source software environment. All upgrades are scheduled to be completed by January 2014. The Wizard will remain functional during the upgrade phase.|
