Hawai’i is the first state in the nation to adopt a 100 percent renewable portfolio standard for the energy sector.  Although renewable energy is laudable, what impact will the state’s 100% mandate have upon the business climate, consumers, and the environment?

James Taylor, Senior Fellow for Energy and Environment at the Heartland Institute holds that the 100% mandate will hurt Hawaii more than help.

Taylor has presented energy and environment analysis on CNN, CNN Headline News, Fox News Channel, Fox Business Channel, MSNBC, PBS News Hour, PBS Frontline, CBS Evening News, ABC World News and other TV and radio outlets across the country. Taylor has also been published in virtually every major newspaper in the country.
