Renewable Energy Programs

California, with its abundant natural resources, has a long history of support for renewable energy.

In 2009, 11.6 percent of all electricity came from renewable resources such as wind, solar, geothermal, biomass and small hydroelectric facilities. Large hydro plants generated another 9.2 percent of our electricity.

On October 7, 2015, Governor Edmund G. Brown, Jr. signed legislation to require 50 percent of the state's electricity to come from renewable energy by December 31, 2030.
