California Mandates 100% Renewable Energy

Huge win for California! 🤘

California Gov. Jerry Brown signed into law a measure requiring the state to produce all its electricity from renewable sources by 2045.

The new law is designed to move California fully away from power generation from fossil fuels, mostly natural gas and coal, which today represent about half of the state’s electricity production. Renewables comprise about 32% of current generation, according to the California Energy Commission.

In addition to its 2045 goal, the new law requires the state to produce 50% of its power from renewable energy by 2026, and 60% by 2030.
