Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Permits

Act 234 of the 2007 Legislature established the foundation for the Hawaii GHG Program.  It declared a policy to reduce GHG emissions statewide to 1990 levels by 2020.  Parts of Act 234 are codified in Hawaii Revised Statutes, Chapter 342B.  To help meet the state GHG reduction goal, permit modifications are required to incorporate GHG emission caps for large stationary sources in accordance with Subchapter 11 of the Hawaii Administrative Rules, Chapter 11-60.1.  The GHG emission caps serve as a backstop to renewable portfolio standards and energy efficiency portfolio standards supported by the Hawaii State Energy Office for reducing GHGs.

The following are final permits incorporating GHG Emission Cap Provisions:
