Blue Planet Foundation Programs

Did you know that 90 percent of Hawaii's power—the electricity that runs our homes, the gas for the cars we drive, and the fuel for the jets that transport us across the sea-comes from imported oil? You can help reduce the oil burned in Hawaii—and the money we spend to burn it—through personal action, conservation, and helping to influence government and private policy. Be part of the clean energy movement, and help us achieve energy self-sufficiency for Hawaii.

Policy Initiatives

Blue Planet Foundation's policy advocacy seeks to drive systemic change by constructing the framework for markets and behavior—“institutional acupuncture.” We engage in lawmaking at the state capitol and county councils and rulemaking at the Public Utilities Commission. By working with other clean energy advocates, experts, and community and business leaders, we can develop smart policy solutions that will enable Hawaii to achieve energy independence.
