Blue Planet Foundation and KHON2 are proud to present Empowered: Hawaii’s Clean Energy Future. This 12-part series discusses the importance of renewable energy for our islands. Hear from local families, businesses, and community leaders who are taking action to tackle the climate crisis.
In this premiere episode, learn how Hawaii became the first in the nation to pass a 100% clean energy law. Since becoming a leader in renewable energy policy, our state has seen great success. But even with those victories, Hawaii still has a long way to go. Our islands are already seeing the effects of climate change with major storms and catastrophic flooding. Listen to the stories of two local businesses who are feeling these impacts first-hand. Though the situation is critical, we have a plan for change. Together, we can protect our islands, reduce energy costs, and create a more resilient future for all.
