“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."

Ceres

"In 2015 Ceres and many of our business partners supported SB 350, which extended California’s RPS to ensure that 50% of retail electricity sales in California are generated from eligible renewable resources by 2030. By further accelerating and expanding California’s clean energy targets, SB 100 will help position the state to achieve its economy-wide greenhouse gas emission reduction goals. In addition, this policy proposal takes the visionary step of establishing a goal to supply all end-use electricity needs with zero-carbon resources by 2045.

Office of Ratepayer Advocates

"ORA recognizes that SB 100 will further diversify California’s energy portfolio of clean, renewable energy sources. SB 100 also will spur development of innovative technologies, such as energy storage and grid control systems. This growth can increase competition in the energy storage sector, which in turn, can help keep energy service affordable while advancing the state’s climate and other goals. SB 100 provides the foundation for all Californians to benefit from a cleaner environment, continue growth of a robust economy, and improved public health."
