California Sets Goal Of 100 Percent Renewable Electric Power By 2045

At the same time that he signed the measure, SB100, Brown also issued an executive order that establishes a new carbon neutrality target for that same year.

Brown's remarks came Monday during an interview with The Associated Press after he signed the bill setting a goal of generating all California electricity from clean sources by 2045.

Ever the state to lead the charge towards a more sustainable future, California has set an ambitious goal to rely entirely on renewable electricity by 2045.

He also signed a bill, SB100, making the state's electricity completely emissions-free by 2045.

The signing came in the same week that San Francisco will host a Global Climate Action Summit on September 12-15.

Opponents included major utilities, such as Pacific Gas and Electric and Southern California Edison, oil interests like the Western States Petroleum Association, and the California Farm Bureau Federation and California Chamber of Commerce. "We believe customers must be protected from unreasonable rate and bill impacts".

"This summit is going to be a showcase for the whole world in terms of climate action", said Ethan Elkind, head of the climate program at the Center for Law, Energy & the Environment at the University of California, Berkeley.

Without referring to Trump, Brown said Monday that climate change was an "existential threat", adding, "No matter what the naysayers may say, it is a real and present danger to California and to the people of the world". It's merely a goal, with no mandate or penalty for falling short. Hawaii has adopted a similar goal. The aim is to ensure greenhouse gas emissions are low enough that they can be absorbed by forests, oceans, soil and other natural systems. The state now gets about 44 percent of its power from renewables and hydropower.

"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.

Renewable energy experts have looked to batteries that can store solar energy generated in the afternoon as one solution, but the technology is not ready for wide-scale deployment. The bulk of that is solar energy.

"It's impossible to overstate how significant it is for a state as large and influential as California to commit to 100 percent clean energy", Sierra Club Executive Director Michael Brune said Monday in a statement.

The order directs several state agencies to set targets for artificially removing carbon dioxide from the air through a process known as "sequestration". Kevin de León, a Los Angeles Democrat who carried SB 100, said. It also is less restrictive on technology, allowing any carbon-free resources to qualify including large hydroelectric dams and nuclear power.
