It’s the end of a dirty era in Hawaii. The state’s last-ever coal shipment arrived in Oahu on Wednesday, bound for the last remaining coal-fired power plant, which is due to shut down in September.

The newly arrived 15,000 tons of coal are for the AES Hawaii power plant, the largest power plant on Oahu and the biggest source of the island’s electricity. The 180-megawatt plant provided 13% of the state’s overall power in 2018.
