<div class="descr">Is "clean" energy more urgent than "renewable" energy? Should government incentivize behind-the-meter investments (including EVs) when only higher-income families tend to have the savings and tax liabilities to take advantage of them? Shouldn't fossil fuel companies reimburse people and states for medical costs due to air pollution created by those fossil fuels? Come join our panel and ask your questions about the future of clean energy and its impact on the environment here in Hawaii.
