THIRTIETH LEGISLATURE, 2019

 

STATE OF HAWAII

 

 

 

 

 

SENATE RESOLUTION

 

 

requesting the department of accounting and general services to investigate the coexistence of jalousie windows and air conditioning in state buildings and consider more energy efficient alternatives.

 

 


     WHEREAS, many facilities owned by the State have installed air conditioning units after the facility's initial construction; and

 

     WHEREAS, some of these facilities still have jalousie windows between the air conditioned spaces and the outdoor environment; and

 

     WHEREAS, jalousie windows allow the conditioned air to escape the building, thus increasing the expense of providing air conditioning to the indoor environment; now, therefore,

 

     BE IT RESOLVED by the Senate of the Thirtieth Legislature of the State of Hawaii, Regular Session of 2019, that the Department of Accounting and General Services is requested to investigate the coexistence of jalousie windows and air conditioning in state buildings and consider more energy efficient alternatives, such as replacing the jalousie windows with sealed windows; and

 

     BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that certified copies of this Resolution be transmitted to the Governor, Lieutenant Governor, Comptroller, and Administrator of the Central Services Division of the Department of Accounting and General Services.
