POSTED: 01:30 a.m. HST, Nov 03, 2013

~~<p>With Hawaii's target of 70 percent clean energy by 2030, our state has set forth one of the most aggressive energy standards in the nation. As recent reports of Hawaii ranking third in solar energy generation on a per capita basis and doubling its solar power capacity every year since 2005 suggest, we are making significant progress toward our goal. Because of high electricity expenses and yearround sunshine, Hawaii consistently places among the top 10 states in renewable energy production. Our state, however, is not No. 1 in solar adoption no matter the measurement or study used.</p>
