Governor Jerry Brown signed a bill today that will set a goal to have California to run on 100% renewable energy by 2045. Even though that seems pretty far away, it’s also a pretty hefty goal. California is the second state to pass this bill, Hawaii was the first. Senate Bill 100 speeds up the state’s timeline for moving to renewable energy sources like solar and wind, and requires that all retail electricity be generated from renewables by 2045. This will essentially eliminate fossil fuels from its energy sources altogether. Click here for the full story.
