Summary

Hawaii Revised Statutes (HRS) §46-19.6 requires each county agency that issues building, construction, or development-related permits to establish a procedure for priority processing of permit applications for construction projects incorporating energy and environmental design building standards. The priority processing will be provided at no additional cost.

Buildings eligible for priority processing are those that meet the "energy and environmental design building standards". These standards can be achieved by earning either a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) silver rating, a two Green Globes rating, or a comparable state-approved, nationally recognized, and consensus-based guideline, standard, or system.

For further information, contact the appropriate county building department.
