California mandates 100% clean energy by 2045

Article intro image

California plans to obtain all of its electricity from clean energy sources by 2045 under legislation signed by Gov.

California is doing a pretty good job of flying the flag for renewable energy in the USA, as the state has just announced it will aim to bolster its climate targets. Hawaii Gov. David Ige in June signed a similar bill, strengthening the state's commitment to generate 100 percent of its electricity from renewable energy resources by 2045.

"There is no understating the importance of this measure", Brown said at a signing ceremony in Sacramento surrounded by state lawmakers. This order essentially states that California must "remove (s) as much carbon dioxide from the atmosphere as it emits".

This action comes days before grassroots activists, mayors, governors, heads of industry and worldwide leaders convene in San Francisco for the express goal of mobilizing climate action at the Global Climate Action Summit. Since 2010, California has procured more than 1,500 MW of new energy storage capacity; North American energy users and utilities have collectively procured over 2 GW of advanced energy storage projects to date. Yes, they do. So what we believe is that people are increasingly seeing the symptoms. This will require large investments across all sectors - energy, transportation, industrial, commercial and residential buildings, agriculture, and various forms of sequestration including natural and working lands, Brown said.

"California is committed to doing whatever is necessary to meet the existential threat of climate change", Brown said in his signing message for the bill. It is more of a goal than a mandate.

Some 7,000 guard members are ready to mobilize in North Carolina, while 1,100 will be activated in SC . Henry McMaster ordered a mandatory evacuation of coastal counties because of Hurricane Florence.

About 26.9% of the state's generation now comes from hydro, with 26.9% from renewables and 43.3% from natural gas.

"California must take a stand and tell the world we are, as always, undeterred by those who wish to stop our progress and move backwards", Schwarzenegger wrote.

"We applaud the governor for his support to make a 100% clean energy grid a reality for our great state, and demonstrating California's global leadership for a secure, clean, affordable energy future", said Amisha Rai, Senior Director of California Policy for the Advanced Energy Economy (AEE).

And earlier this year, for one entire month, Portugal produced enough renewable energy to meet its entire electrical demand - although the country did rely on fossil fuels to balance out the periodic disconnect between supply and demand. Between 2008 and 2015, the price utilities paid for solar energy dropped 77 percent. Kevin de León, a Los Angeles Democrat who carried SB 100, said.

NPR's Planet Money reported that on a sunny day this June, almost 50 percent of the state's electricity came from solar energy alone.
