Gov. Gavin Newsom on July 30 outlined the state’s goals to achieve a 100% clean electricity system that supports long-term clean energy reliability and signed an emergency proclamation to free up energy supply to meet demand during extreme heat events and wildfires.
“California leads the nation with its ambitious clean energy goals, and with the climate crisis threatening communities across the West, we must take decisive action to scale up and speed up our transition to a 100% clean electricity system that meets the needs of the 22nd Century and beyond,” Newsom said. “While we build toward a safe, affordable and reliable energy future that benefits all our communities, we’re also taking action to meet the challenges caused by climate change that are already at our doorstep.”
The California Comeback Plan’s roadmap to clean energy aims to increase the diversity of the state’s clean energy, including solar, battery storage, onshore and offshore wind, geothermal, pumped storage and more; modernize the state’s grid and incorporating distributed energy resources; and increase long-duration energy storage projects.
It also includes “grid hardening” and resiliency to make transmission and distribution lines more fire resistant, increasing undergrounding of lines, better detection of faults and the strategic placement of remote grids in vulnerable communities; and reducing carbon emissions through electrification of our transportation systems, homes and businesses.
The state budget allocates $812 million over two years to accelerate California’s progress on meeting its clean energy goals and better position California as a leader in advancing clean technologies and as a key partner to the federal administration in tackling climate change and stimulating the economy.
