Hawaii's Schools to get Energy Efficiency Boost

A BILL passed last month in Hawaii will see almost a third of the State’s $150 million green energy loan program help schools lower their electricity bills.

The bill just needs the signature of Hawaii’s governor David Ige's signature, to provide the state Department of Education an interest-free $46.4 million loan to improve energy efficiency in schools.

Back in February the State approved the money from the find to install energy efficient LED lighting, and the installation of further
energy conservation actions to aid cooling across 242 of the 256 public schools in the island state.
