California Renewable Energy
Statistics and Data

Governor Brown signed the Clean Energy and Pollution Reduction Act of 2015, which establishes targets to increase the Renewables Portfolio Standard (RPS) to 50 percent by 2030 from the retail sales of renewable electricity. The California Energy Commission is involved in many efforts to promote and support renewable energy development. These include ensuring that the state's utilities disclose their electricity supply portfolio to consumers, funding solar photovoltaic installations on new single-family and multifamily homes, distributing renewable energy conservation planning grants to local governments, providing incentives for the development of geothermal resources, addressing barriers to bioenergy development, and tracking the state's progress toward its renewable goals. The Data, Facts, and Statistics Section below and the Renewable Energy Program provides additional historical and current information.
