Josh Green on Energy & Oil



Hydrogen technology has potential to make us energy exporter

As an island state, climate change threatens our economy, culture, environment, and the sustainability of our way of life. That's why I announced our commitment to providing 100 million dollars for a climate impact fund steered by the Climate Change Mitigation and Adaption Commission. This includes looking at the resiliency of the power grid, renewable energy, sustainable transportation, land use planning, sea level rise, health, natural and cultural resource impacts, and much more.

We are preparing a historic application to potentially bring in over a billion dollars in federal and private sector investments to our state through a regional Hydrogen Hub. The integration of hydrogen technology into our grid, along with the continued expansion of traditional renewable energy infrastructure, will give utilities, businesses, and local talent an international advantage, with the potential to turn our state into a regional energy exporter.

Voted YES to suspend the gasoline price cap

Bill Number: HB 3115 - A bill for an act relating to the petroleum industry. Establishes: (1) petroleum industry monitoring, analysis, and reporting special fund; (2) petroleum industry information reporting system; and (3) unfair practices by petroleum industry. Suspends enforcement of gasoline price limit program by PUC.

Wikipedia "Gas Cap Law" downloaded 1/7/2022:The Hawaii Gas Cap Law, introduced in 2005, set a price ceiling on wholesale gasoline prices. The price was set weekly by the Hawaii Public Utilities Commission (PUC). On May 5, 2006, [HB3115] suspended the gas cap law. The bill allows Hawaii's governor to reinstate the gas cap law at any time. In force for less than a year, the cap was seen by some as artificially raising consumer prices. The law has not been reinstated.

Legislative outcome: Passed Senate 22-3-0 on May/2/06; passed House 50-0-1 on May/4/06; Rep. Josh Green voted YES; Signed by Governor Linda Lingle on May/5/06
