Never mind Trump’s energy policies; California is going for 100% renewable energy

BBC 10th Sept 2018 , California has passed a law committing to exclusively carbon-free
electricity sources by 2045, setting it against US President Donald Trump’s
energy policy. “There is no understating the importance of this measure,”
Governor Jerry Brown said, and vowed to honour the 2015 Paris climate deal.
Last year Mr Trump said he would pull the US out of the deal and negotiate
a new “fair” deal for US businesses. California is the second US state
after Hawaii to commit to carbon-free energy. Were it to be an independent
country, California would have the fifth largest economy in the world, trailing

only Germany, Japan, China and the US. At a signing ceremony in
the state capital Sacramento, Mr Brown vowed to meet the terms of the Paris
agreement and to “continue down that path to transition our economy to zero
carbon emissions”. Under the terms of the legislation, all utility c
ompanies must get 60% of their energy from renewable sources by 2030. By
2045, all Californian electricity must come from carbon-free or renewable
energy.

world’s fifth largest economy if it was an independent country – on an
ambitious path: using 100% clean electricity by 2045.
