On October 13, Senator Jon Yoshimura, Senator Mike Gabbard and Senator Glenn Wakai, will hold a West O'ahu Energy and EV Fair at 'Ewa Makai Middle School from 10:00am – 1:00pm. The event will feature an update on new Public Utilities Commission rules for residential solar, an opportunity to learn about ways to generate your own clean energy and how to conserve it, and electric vehicle displays from BMW, Nissan, and Tesla.

The state has a goal of producing 100 percent of its electricity from renewable energy sources by 2045. This informative session will shed light on policies that will help to achieve those goals, while giving residents the opportunity to learn about ways in which they can be part of this clean energy future.

"As an advocate of a clean energy future, I am working with community and industry stakeholders to develop more clean energy alternatives that will reduce our dependence on imported oil. Hawai'i's economy, environment, and quality of life is intricately tied to our ability to produce clean and affordable energy," said Sen. Yoshimura.

The event is free and the public is highly encouraged to attend.
