Newsom Unveils Roadmap Toward Goal of 100% Clean Energy by 2045

California Gov. Gavin Newsom on Thursday unveiled a roadmap for reaching the state’s goal of 100% clean energy by 2045. The introduction of the roadmap, titled “Building the Electricity Grid of the Future: California’s Clean Energy Transition Plan,” followed Newsom’s announcement earlier this month of an executive order and legislative package to streamline permitting for clean energy projects. 

“California has shown we have a vision, and that vision is achievable,” said Newsom.. “We have hit our early targets, some even ahead of schedule, but we are in a race against climate change. We must build more, faster, to ensure California has the clean, reliable and affordable electricity it needs to power our future.” 

Speaking at Moxion Power headquarters in Richmond, Newsom highlighted a vision that will include hundreds of new solar, wind, battery storage and other clean energy projects. The goal is to build 148,000 megawatts of new clean power.
