RE: H.B. No. 2413
Honorable Scott K. Saiki
Speaker, House of Representatives
Thirtieth State Legislature
Regular Session of 2020
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Consumer Protection & Commerce, to which was referred H.B. No. 2413, H.D. 1, entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO ENERGY,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose of this measure is to require the Hawaii State Energy Office, in consultation with the Department of Health, to conduct a comprehensive study to determine the best practices for disposal and recycling of discarded clean energy products in the State.
Your Committee finds that a study to determine best practices for the appropriate disposition of solar panels and solar appliances is necessary to ensure that these clean energy products are disposed of, recycled, and replaced in a manner that is safe for people and the environment.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Consumer Protection & Commerce that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of H.B. No. 2413, H.D. 1, and recommends that it be referred to your Committee on Finance.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Consumer Protection & Commerce,
ROY M. TAKUMI, Chair
