California leading the clean energy movement in US
See this article. Last week the 25th annual Bioneers Conference was held in Marin. Their energy goals included 3,000 MW of solar power installed in the state by the end of 2016, photovoltaic panels on a million rooftops by 2017 and another million installed by 2020. They also plan on 1.5 million electric vehicles on the road by 2025 and to build 1,000 charging stations for them, as well as reducing its greenhouse gas emissions by at least 80 percent by 2050. All retail electricity suppliers in the state must provide 33% of their power from renewable sources by 2020. If this can motivate the rest of the States and Fed energy policy we just might have a chance.
