California Sets 33% By 2020 Renewable Energy Standard


After a state senate bill increasing California's renewable energy standard failed to cialis professional 100 mg pass, the state's Air Resources Board (CARB) has gone ahead and www.wowgraphicdesigns.com increased the goal on their own.

The state now has a renewable energy standard requiring 33 percent of its energy come from renewables by 2020 and 20 percent by 2012, which puts more weight behind an executive order signed by the governor outlining the same requirement last year.

The state already gets about 14 percent of their electricity through renewable sources, but a six percent gain in less than two years is still quite a feat.

California has the www.eastgreenbushlibrary.org highest renewable energy standard in the country, with Colorado just behind them requiring 30 percent by 2020.

I agree with Enrique's comment that this is setting the standard for the whole world, But is this standard acheivable for the whole world? California is unique in that there is abundant desert prime for solar development and bluffs and off shore space for wind power. I think it is fantastic that California is "going there" but I hope that other states, such as my own, Pennsylvania don't jump on the bandwagon too soon, Here in the northeast we simply don't have the space or the year-round sun to make it happen immediately. However, one question comes to mind...what counts as a renewable energy source? "Biofuels" can be mixed with coal at a 5-10% ratio in a CFB (Circulating Fluidized Bed) Boiler - does that count as a renewable source then????
