Energy Affordability and Climate VISTA
 
 
 
The Energy Affordability and Climate VISTA will support the state’s Climate Change Mitigation and Adaptation Commission (Commission) in operationalizing its mission through the Climate Ready Hawaii cohort. The mission is to promote ambitious, climate-neutral, culturally responsive strategies for climate change adaptation and mitigation in a manner that is clean, equitable and resilient. The position will help the Hawaii State Energy Office (HSEO) to lift vulnerable and underserved communities out of poverty by lowering their energy costs, decreasing the potential negative impacts and improving the benefits of clean energy projects, and providing higher wage, long-term employment opportunities. The VISTA will play a key role in helping HSEO build equity into its policies and programs to ensure “no one is left behind.”
