A bill to increase California’s renewable portfolio standard is advancing in the state Legislature against the backdrop of President Trump and his efforts to reverse federal climate policies.
S.B. 100, by state Sen. Kevin de León (D), would increase the Golden State’s renewable portfolio standard to 60 percent by 2030, up from 50 percent currently, with an additional target of 100 percent “zero-carbon” electricity by 2045.
