Hawaii is an ideal candidate for alternative energy solutions. It’s an island, meaning any outside fuels must be shipped directly to the state (and each various island). Furthermore, it has an abundance of natural energy gifts – active geothermal energy, powerful wind cycles, easy access to tidal, and a whole lotta’ sun.
It’s no surprise then, that Hawaii has now created a new mandate for new homes built in the state – solar hot water heaters must now be included in any new home construction!
