    Calif Lawmakers Approve 100% New Energy By 2045 Goal

    California Assembly advances 100% clean energy bill

    Liam Dillon, August 28, 2018 (LA Times)

    "California would set some of the nation’s strongest clean energy goals under…the just-passed] legislation that would require California to obtain 100% of its power from clean sources by 2045…[Its cost and feasibility were] debated by lawmakers for nearly two years…Lawmakers supporting the bill said it was important that the state continue its pioneering efforts to curb greenhouse gas emissions…Senate Bill 100 [was introduced by Senator Kevin De Leon and] would also require electric utilities and other service providers to generate 60% of their power from renewable sources by 2030, up from the current 50% goal…If it is signed by the governor, California would become the second state in the U.S. [following Hawaii] to rely solely on clean energy by 2045…[O]pponents, chiefly Republican legislators, argued that phasing out fossil fuels by 2045 was not achievable, and could sharply increase energy prices…

    …[The bill has been part of debate about a proposal from Gov. Jerry Brown to integrate California's electricity grid with other states in the region…[and debate about] comprehensive legislation to address wildfires…Brown has not taken a public position on SB 100…[but former] Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger] argued that Trump administration policies rolling back federal efforts to combat climate change made it all the more urgent…Former Vice President Al Gore also cited White House policies in his endorsement of the bill, saying that California must respond by leading on climate change…The politics over the bill go beyond energy policy. De León, former president pro tem of the state Senate, is running for U.S. Senate against fellow Democrat Dianne Feinstein, who is seeking a fifth full term…[Many lawmakers] have endorsed Feinstein…” click here for more
