California tries again with 3 landmark Clean energy bills. This time things are different

“California has championed clean energy and climate change mitigation, but legislators last year failed to pass SB 100, a 100 percent clean energy bill authored by Senate leader Kevin De León and supported by Governor Jerry Brown. The bill would increase the state’s renewable energy goal to 60 percent by 2030, and require entirely carbon-free electricity by 2045.

A different bill to regionalize the California grid faltered last year, and one to create a long-term funding program for energy storage disappeared from the agenda before a vote last July.

All three have returned to the hearing agenda this June, and evidence suggests old sources of opposition are receding.”
