In Hawaii, we all recognize our dependence on imported fossil fuels is unacceptable and we
desire a different result. Setting aside the $4 billion a year we pay for this foreign oil, our economic security and quality of life is dependent on often hostile suppliers in often unstable parts
of the world.
However, over the past 30 years, our state's dependence on foreign oil has not declined;
rather we have remained the most petroleum dependent state in the nation.

We help you obtain your NEM agreement.
