Newsom Signs Emergency Proclamation to Free Up Energy Supply

Gov. Gavin Newsom recently outlined the state’s goals to achieve a 100 percent clean electricity system that supports long-term clean energy reliability. The governor also signed an emergency proclamation to free up energy supply to meet demand during extreme heat events and more intense wildfires. The proclamation will also expedite deployment of clean energy resources this year and next year.

“California leads the nation with its ambitious clean energy goals, and with the climate crisis threatening communities across the West, we must take decisive action to scale up and speed up our transition to a 100 percent clean electricity system that meets the needs of the 22nd Century and beyond,” said Newsom. “While we build toward a safe, affordable and reliable energy future that benefits all our communities, we’re also taking action to meet the challenges caused by climate change that are already at our doorstep.”

Newsom’s vision for tomorrow’s electricity system will help take on the climate change impacts being felt in California and throughout the West including frequent and extreme heat waves, drought and wildfires – which are straining the electric grid.
