California moves one step closer to 100 per cent renewables by 2045 | RenewEconomy

The California State Assembly on Tuesday passed what is being described as an historic bill that would serve to eliminate all carbon emissions from the state’s electricity system by 2045, and push it to 100 per cent renewables by the same time.

The Senate Bill 100 (SB-100) will see California’s renewable energy target increase to 60 per cent by 2030 – with an interim target of 50 per cent by the end of 2026 – and to 100% by 2045. It will be the second state in the US – after Hawaii – to mandate a 100 per cent renewable energy target.
