California's Senate leader has introduced legislation that would require the state to draw all of its electricity from renewable sources by 2045. If passed, the bill would make the nation's largest state the second to commit to a carbon-free grid.
The legislation makes California the latest in a small number of states this year to propose dramatically ramping up renewable energy, even as President Donald Trump stresses primarily fossil fuels in his energy plan.
Last week, a Nevada lawmaker introduced a bill that would update that state's portfolio standard to require 80 percent renewables by 2040. The current standard calls for 25 percent by 2025.
Long term jobs, energy security, national security, economically competitive technologies, cleaner environment, more efficiency, social justice, help mitigate global warming, supporting current innovative technology advancement that kept this country as world power... no brainer to me.
