California Now Sources 30 Percent of Its Electric Energy from Renewables
California leads the U.S. in renewables installed and is on its way to meeting a goal of sourcing 50% of electricity from renewables sources, like wind and solar, by 2030.
The California Energy Commission is the state's primary energy policy and planning agency. The agency was established by the California Legislature through the Warren-Alquist Act in 1974. It has seven core responsibilities: advancing state energy policy, encouraging energy efficiency, certifying thermal power plants, investing in energy innovation, developing renewable energy, transforming transportation, and preparing for energy emergencies.
