California Bill Aims for 100 Percent Renewable Energy by 2045

A new California bill, if passed, would push the state to go 100% renewable by 2045, InsideClimate News reports.

InsideClimate News reports that California Senate leader Kevin de Leon has introduced a bill that would require the state to go 100% renewable by 2045. If passed, the legislation would make California the second state (after Hawaii) to adopt a fossil-fuel-free electrical grid.
