This Week’s Reason for Hope

Hawaii has closed its last coal power plant

Closure will save roughly 1.5 million metric tons of carbon emissions / year or roughly the same as taking 325K cars off the road

For now, the island will burn oil to fill the gap until it can deploy more renewables and storage

AES, the owner of the coal plant, is in process of developing large solar farms across the islands

Hawaii currently generates 40% of its energy from renewables and has committed to be 100% renewable by 2045
