  • A joint House-Senate committee in Hawaii agreed in a compromise on House Bill 623 to set 2045 as the target year for obtaining 100% of the state's electricity from renewables. The Senate had wanted 2050 and the House had wanted 2040.
  • The bill will now return to the Senate and the House. If approved by both bodies, the bill will then be sent to the governor's office for his signature. 

A 100% renewables mandate would be the most ambitious by far in the U.S.
