California Nearing Approval of 2045 All Clean Energy Goals

California took a giant leap toward its climate change goals Tuesday, with lawmakers voting to approve a bill that would require the state to get 100 percent of its electricity from carbon-free energy sources like solar, wind and geothermal by 2045.

State lawmakers pitched the bill as an economic boon for California, which has become a national leader in clean energy technologies as a result of previous laws designed to reduce planet-warming carbon emissions. The continued growth of renewable energy could be especially beneficial to California’s inland deserts, which have year-round sunshine, strong wind resources and a powerful geothermal hot spot by the Salton Sea.
