California Assembly Passes Historic 100% Carbon-Free Electricity Bill

The world’s fifth-largest economy will have to eliminate carbon emissions from electricity by 2045.

“Today, California made history," said Adam Browning, executive director of Vote Solar, in a statement.

"We applaud all of the state lawmakers who acted on behalf of their constituents, answered the overwhelming call for an economy powered entirely by clean energy, and demonstrated democracy at its best," he said. "When the world’s fifth-largest economy votes to go 100 percent clean, there’s no room left for the naysayers to say it can’t be done."
