This Student and Community petition is for the purpose of making known our strong desire as Students and as a supportive Community to have the solar panels installed on the University of Hawaii's West Oahu Campus, so as to assist Chancellor Freitas in his struggle to make our campus more green and sustainable. This is an initiative near and dear to our hearts. We strive to have a more sustainable, green, beautiful campus, and with the installation of solar panels, we are taking one more step forward in this endeavor.

      Rep. Mike Gabbard is now looking into the hold up for these solar panels. He confirms that funding has been specifically set aside for these solar panels to be installed, and is investigating what the hold up is. Go Gabbard! :)

      Rep. Chris Lee is amazing. He will be meeting with Governor Abercrombie this coming week about this, to hopefully get a letter of support for this project to move forward more quickly, bypassing some silly bureaucratic hold ups. We then plan on taking this to the local news stations to get the public a little more aware. Stay tuned, things are moving! :)

      I think Hawaii should set an example of sustainability for the rest of the country. West Oahu Campus is an educational institution that can help the state to advocate this message. The campus also enjoys a favorable geographical location that can greatly benefit from the solar energy. This initial investment can save state money in the long run, so that tax-payer's money can be spent on education of our people, instead on paying oil companies.
