Measure Title: RELATING TO ENERGY EFFICIENCY.
Report Title: Energy Efficiency; State Facilities; Hawaii State Energy Office; Building Design
Description: Requires and establishes deadlines for state facilities, except smaller facilities and facilities within the stadium development district, to implement cost-effective energy efficiency measures. Allows the department of accounting and general services to opt out of the cost-effective energy efficiency measures if a facility will be demolished within five years. Directs the Hawaii natural energy institute to collect utility bill and energy usage data for state-owned buildings and to make the data publicly available. Establishes a goal for the State to achieve at least a twenty-five percent reduction in the electricity consumption of state facilities. Provides that certain agencies that perform energy efficiency retrofitting may continue to receive appropriations for energy expenditures. Beginning 7/1/2022, requires, where feasible and cost-effective, the design of all new state building construction to maximize energy and water efficiency, maximize energy generation potential, and use building materials that reduce the carbon footprint of the project. Effective 7/1/2050. (SD1)
