California Would Require Electricity To Be 100 Percent Renewable By 2045 If This Bill Passes

Electricity in California would all come from sources like wind and solar if a bill in the Assembly becomes law. Senate Bill 100 starts by boosting the state’s renewable electricity requirement to 60 percent by 2030. Democratic state Sen. Nancy Skinner says the bill also sets a goal of getting 100 percent of electricity from non-carbon emitting sources by 2045. “If we pull that off, then we will be the largest users of energy in the world with such a goal,” said Skinner, who co-authored the bill.
