California 100% renewable energy bill heads to Assembly – pv magazine USA

California just took another step on the road to becoming the second U.S. state to set a mandate that utilities must move towards sourcing 100% of their electricity from renewable energy and other sources that do not emit CO2.

On a 10-5 vote, this morning California time the Assembly Utilities and Energy Committee approved SB100, a bill that will set a 100% by 2045 clean energy policy. The bill now goes to the full Assembly for a vote, and if approved will go to Governor Jerry Brown (D), who is expected to sign it.
