Stateline - Hawaii’s Solar Tax Credits Are a Threat to State Budget

Stateline - Hawaii’s Solar Tax Credits Are a Threat to State Budget | Restorative Developments | Scoop.it

Solar is surging in Hawaii. There’s no disputing that.

 

Solar power installations have sprouted all across the islands, helping the state move toward its ambitious renewable energy goal and adding some 2,000 “green-collar” jobs to local economies. The projects account for an estimated 15 percent of all construction statewide.
