    California Lays Out Its Path To 100%

    California Releases Report Charting Path to 100 Percent Clean Electricity

    March 15, 2021 (California Energy Commission)

    “…[California’s] initial analysis of what will be needed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to zero by 2045] finds that the goals of SB 100 can be achieved in different ways, but reaching them will require significant investments in new and existing technologies and an increased, sustained build-out of clean energy projects to bring new resources on-line…To reach the 2045 target while electrifying other sectors to meet the state’s economywide climate goals, California will need to roughly triple its current electricity grid capacity…[and] sustain its expansion of clean electricity generation capacity at a record-breaking rate for the next 25 years…

    …On average, the state may need to build up to 6 gigawatts (GW) of new renewable and storage resources annually. By comparison over the last decade, the state has built on average 1 GW of utility solar and 300 megawatts (MW) of wind per year. Over the next three years, electricity providers regulated by the CPUC will add another 8 GW of clean energy resources…

    ...[This will reduce air pollution, improve public health, and create thousands of jobs such as manufacturing and installing wind turbines and solar panels and developing new clean energy technologies…[There will be] a 6 percent increase in total annual electricity system costs by 2045, compared to the estimated cost of achieving 60 percent renewable electricity by 2030…” click here for more
