California’s Renewable Energy

Renewable energy is helping California meet its electricity needs, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and grow the state’s economy.

In its latest tracking progress report on renewable energy, the California Energy Commission estimates that nearly 25 percent of electricity retail sales in 2014 came from renewable energy sources such as wind, solar, geothermal, biomass and small hydroelectric. California is on track to meet the Renewables Portfolio Standard goal requiring all utilities to procure 33 percent of retail sales from renewable resources by 2020.
