The California Energy Commission (CEC) unanimously adopted energy-saving targets as mandated by the Clean Energy & Pollution Reduction Act (Senate Bill 350). The CEC report concludes that meeting the energy-savings target is well within the state’s grasp.

The report highlights specific actions required to bridge the remaining gap, such as better targeting agricultural and industrial savings, and improving compliance with California’s energy code through outreach and education.
