The California Public Utilities Commission has released a report detailing how the state’s utilities are well ahead of the RPS targets, and that investor-owned utilities have already surpassed interim targets. That will soon result in California exceeding its 2020 renewable energy targets, and probably meeting the target of 50 percent for 2030 ten years early in 2020.

“There is no greater time than now to fight climate change, and California is leading the way,” said CPUC Commissioner Clifford Rechtschaffen.  “Our utilities are exceeding the goals we put in place for them. Costs have continued to decline, and reliability has not been compromised in any way. California’s successful program offers lessons for other states interested in advancing clean energy policies.”
