Honolulu Leads Nation in Green Appliance Use

According to the Honolulu Advertiser, Honolulu leads the nation in green-appliance households, as found in a recent study by Scarborough Research.

The consumer research firm said Honolulu tied with Green Bay, Wis., with 40% of households having energy-saving appliances. That compares with the national average of 32%.

Scarborough said the top green cities shared several traits, including love of the outdoors. Several areas tied for the least green appliance city, Las Vegas and four cities in Texas that included Brownsville and McAllen.

The economy may be tight, but homeowners - and renters too - in Hawaii Kai love the outdoors and invest in that lifestyle. Our community is built around the water and enjoyment of the water, so we naturally gravitate to outdoor activities. Read my Active Rain blog on the current trend in Outdoor Investments.
