This initiative implements energy efficiency measures to enable underserved communities to lower their energy costs, and thereby pay for critical needs to improve their quality of life.
As the dialogue shifts from pandemic response and containment to economic recovery in Hawai‘i, this initiative is working to ensure that the conservation sector is positioned as a key way to diversify our economy and put people back to work. They are working with thought leaders to develop a unified plan from the conservation sector, aggregating a high-level overview of job creation potential (in "shovel-ready" green initiatives), funding needs, and projected return on investment. The intention is that this will put the conservation sector into the conversation and decision-making around federal stimulus. They are also coordinating with the agriculture/local food sector and the clean energy sector to identify synergies, reduce redundancy, and ensure the sustainability sector is broadly coordinated and ready to accelerate our economic and cultural recovery from the pandemic.
