California produces 23.2 times as much solar power as it did in 2007, and 2.6 times as much wind power, according to a new report released today by Environment California Research & Policy Center. The report also highlights advances in the use of energy storage and electric vehicles, and California ranked 19th for improvements in electricity energy efficiency programs.
Over the last decade, clean energy has grown by leaps and bounds. Technologies that can help America shift away from fossil fuels — like solar panels, wind turbines, LED light bulbs, energy storage and electric cars — have gone from novelties to core features of the nation's energy landscape.
The California Assembly Committee on Utilities and Energy voted today to pass the landmark Senate Bill 100 (De León), which will ensure that California generates 100 percent of its electricity from renewable and zero-carbon sources by 2045.
