California’s legislators set landmark goal for 100% carbon-free electricity by 2045 …& 60% RE by 2030

Hawaii passed legislation in 2015 for 100% carbon-free electricity by 2045. Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York and Washington, D.C. are also considering the same mandate.

The New York Times reports that “the California bill passed the State Assembly on Tuesday by a vote of 44 to 33. The Senate passed a version of the measure in May 2017. The two chambers still must agree on amendments, but it is expected to be made final by the close of the legislative session on Friday.”

What a contrast with the federal government. What a drama: a battle for the soul of energy-in-civilisation, with a liveable future on the planet at stake.
