“The California Environmental Justice Alliance is excited about the expansion of renewable energy with SB 100, hat will transition our state away from fossil fuels that have disproportionately impacted the most disadvantaged communities and communities of color.  SB 100 charts a pathway for the public health and economic benefits of local renewable energy to reach communities that need it the most.  In a time where our nation is moving backwards on renewable energy, SB 100 offers an opportunity to put equity at the center of energy policy.”

Peter Miller

“The 100 percent clean energy target in SB 100 will accelerate progress toward cleaner air, a prosperous economy, and a healthy planet for future generations.  Once again, California can show the world what can be done with a clear vision and an unwavering commitment to progress.”

Shannon Eddy

“LSA is pleased to see SB 100 move forward. The passage of this critical legislation moves California one step closer to strengthening its role as a global climate and clean energy policy leader.  With it will come unprecedented economic growth and much needed jobs for California.”

Jan Smutny-Jones

“SB 100 builds off of California’s great progress in lowering carbon emissions. We are confident that the renewable requirements in SB 100 can be met with a well balanced portfolio of renewable energy resources. We look forward to working with Senator de León to ensure California’s energy needs are met with reliable, affordable and clean resources.”

Bonnie Holmes-Gen

“Emissions from fossil fuel energy production contribute to ozone and particle pollution, which leads to higher asthma rates and lung cancer cases, hospitalizations, and even early death. Reducing carbon pollution will improve local air quality and save lives.”

Tom Steyer

“California is once again pioneering the path forward, taking bold steps to protect our clean air and water and create a more prosperous future for all Californians.  By committing to 100 percent clean energy, California would show once again why it leads the nation and the world in advancing climate solutions and clean energy.  SB 100 is a bold and ambitious step into the low-carbon future, and we must continue to act decisively to safeguard Californians’ air and water, address the threat of climate change, and create good-paying clean energy jobs.”

Coalition of EJ

"Increasing the requirements of California’s RPS over the next 13 years will provide the necessary market signal to make additional clean energy investments in California, and help position the state to achieve its economy-wide greenhouse gas emission reduction goals. In addition, this bill takes the visionary step of establishing a goal to supply all end-use electricity needs with zero-carbon resources by 2045. Doing so will create momentum for the state to begin taking the necessary steps to dramatically transition away from the use of fossil fuels."

Fossil Free CA

"Building on SB 350, SB 32, and AB 32, SB 100 will provide California’s state agencies, utilities, and businesses with the certainty they need to reach our ambitious – but doable – goal, as we show other states and the world that this is possible."

CEJA Letter

"Senate Bill 100 (de Leon) helps to ensure additional direct emission reductions from the electricity sector. Direct reductions benefit communities living near fossil-fuel power plants, which emit a range of air pollutants that adversely affect the health of those communities. Therefore, by increasing the renewable portfolio standard requirement, California will achieve greater pollution reduction and healthier, sustainable communities."

Fix the Grid

"On behalf of the Fix the Grid Coalition, made up of environmental NGOs, renewable companies and manufacturers, we write to express our support for the SB 100 (DeLeon). California is poised to set an entirely new standard for clean energy – the creation of a low carbon grid. The Fix the Grid Coalition writes to urge you to continue to develop and to pass Senate Bill 100, which will put California firmly on the path to achieving a 100% clean electricity supply."
