Gloria, Co-Author of SB 100 and Author of San Diego’s Climate Action Plan, Cheers California’s Commitment to 100 Percent Clean Energy

SACRAMENTO, CA – Today, California Governor Jerry Brown signed into law SB 100 – statewide legislation committing California to operate on 100 percent clean energy by 2045. Following today’s bill signing, California State Assemblymember Todd Gloria (D-San Diego), co-author of SB 100, issued this statement:

“With the Governor’s signature on SB 100 today, we are now set on an aggressive path toward the adoption of 100 percent clean energy in California. This means future generations of Californians will have a safe and clean place to grow up, live, and raise a family.

“Our commitment to move California to 100 percent clean electricity by 2045 keeps us on the leading edge of climate action, continues our fight against climate change, creates thousands of green energy jobs, and ensures we have a world-class environment for our communities. SB 100 will also better enable local communities to make the move toward clean energy utilization – something I’m proud my hometown, the City of San Diego, was able to do with its climate action plan in 2014.

“This is truly a momentous day for California – a day when we officially take the next step in worldwide climate leadership and invest in a safe and clean future for our children. I could not be prouder to have been part of the team to pass SB 100 and I want to thank Governor Brown for signing this important legislation.”
