Renewable Energy Increase

Very good news, as reported by the Sacramento Bee.

An excerpt.

“California’s utilities, under state order to sharply increase their portfolios of “renewable” power generation — i.e. solar, wind and geothermal — are showing major movement, the Public Utilities Commission said today.

“The commission, in a quarterly report on reaching the goal of 20 percent renewables by 2010 and 33 percent by 2020, said that during the first three months of this year, the utilities hit 15.4 percent, up from 13 percent in 2008. They are on track to reach 18 percent by the end of this year and 21 percent next year, the PUC report said.

“State laws passed in 2002 and 2006 set the 20 percent mark for 2010. Two years ago, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger established the 33 percent goal by executive order.”
