Climate-fueled wildfires and heat waves are disrupting lives and businesses across California as the state struggles to keep the power on. The Community Energy Resilience Act (SB 833) — sponsored by The Climate Center and introduced by Senator Bill Dodd (D-Napa) — would create a new state program to assist communities in developing energy resilience plans based on clean energy instead of diesel back-up generators. 

This bill has unanimously cleared the Senate Energy Committee. Now it goes to the Senate Appropriations Committee. Send your message of support to California State Senate Appropriations Chair Anthony Portantino today!
