    CAMPAIGN FOR LOCAL NEW ENERGY

    Campaign Launches to Unleash Clean Local Energy In California; California Leaders Praise Effort to Help Secure California’s World Leadership in Clean Energy
    April 26, 2011 (Clean Coalition)

    "A broad partnership of business, community, and environmental groups has come together to accelerate the development of California’s clean energy economy.

    "The Clean Coalition, a nonprofit clean energy policy organization based in Palo Alto…[ launched] the CLEAN California Campaign…[It will promote] policies to meet Governor Jerry Brown’s call to install 12,000 megawatts of new renewable energy projects in California communities by 2020. The Campaign’s initiatives will maximize clean energy job creation, attract billions of private investment dollars, boost state and local government budgets, and reduce electric bills."

    "The CLEAN California Partners include the Clean Economy Network, the Los Angeles Business Council, the US Green Building Council California Chapters, the Galvin Electricity Initiative, the Local Clean Energy Alliance, the American Biogas Council, Pacific Environment, Global Exchange, and many other organizations, including private companies…

    "The Campaign will achieve Governor Brown’s energy target by making it easier to sell clean local energy to utilities and connect these projects to the grid. The Clean Coalition is leading the Campaign's legislative and regulatory initiatives: (1) to require standard, long-term CLEAN Contracts for utilities to purchase energy from new projects; and (2) to make grid interconnection costs and timeframes reasonable and predictable…"

    "According to a UC Berkeley study led by Dan Kammen, a robust CLEAN Program for achieving California’s 33 percent Renewables Portfolio Standard (RPS) will stimulate far greater economic benefits to the state, including three times more jobs, $50 billion in additional private investment, and significantly more state and local revenues…

    "…The US Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Lab (NREL) estimated that CLEAN Programs are responsible for 45 percent of all wind energy and 75 percent of all solar photovoltaic capacity installed before 2008. Currently, roughly 90 percent of the solar and the vast majority of biopower and wind capacity deployed in the world are driven by CLEAN Programs."
