It doesn’t take much of a stretch of the imagination to think of a world powered by renewable energy. It is fast becoming necessary - to cut air pollution and combat climate change.
California is a really exciting example of a state trying to change the status quo. It was wonderful to read about how Senate President Kevin de León has put forward a plan to produce 100 per cent renewable energy within California’s electricity grid by 2045.Read More

AB 398 would extend California’s “Cap and Trade” program to 2030. Previously the program was set to expire in 2020.
