New law — more clean local energy for CA
On September 27, Governor Jerry Brown signed Senate Bill (SB) 1332  into law. SB 1332 requires California’s larger Publicly Owned Utilities to launch SB 32 Clean Local Energy Accessible Now (CLEAN) Programs by July 1, 2013. The new law also ensures that an additional 100-250 megawatts (MW) of local renewable energy will soon come online in California. Also passing in to law was SB 1122, which requires the three major investor owned utilities to create an additional 250 MW of capacity for biopower projects in their SB 32 CLEAN Programs. SB 1332 and SB 1122 both mark important victories in the ongoing transition towards clean local energy in California.
