[government news] California mandates 100% clean energy by 2045

SACRAMENTO — In a major environmental milestone, Gov. Jerry Brown on Monday signed a law requiring California to obtain 100 percent of its electricity from clean sources such as solar, wind and hydropower from large dams by 2045.

The new law keeps California at the forefront of addressing climate change, and essentially commits the world’s fifth-largest economy with 40 million people to a phase-out of fossil fuels from power plants. It also requires that 50 percent of the state’s electricity come from renewable energy by 2026 and 60 percent by 2030, up from the current level of 32 percent.
