“[SB 350's] landmark legislation shows that California is serious about being a worldwide leader on clean, renewable energy, energy efficiency and electric vehicles,” said E2 Western states advocate Mary Solecki. “And it has only strengthened our resolve to fight in the months ahead to get the petroleum industry to catch up with other energy sectors to help provide cleaner transportation options for Californians.”
The national nonpartisan business group Environmental Entrepreneurs (E2) today released its latest quarterly clean energy jobs report showing that nearly 10,500 clean energy and clean transportation jobs were announced nationwide between April and June. The jobs were announced at nearly 40 projects across 22 states.
California’s efforts to reduce electricity consumption over the last four decades saved $90 billion on utility bills, created hundreds of thousands of jobs and avoided construction of 41 power plants, according to a report released Thursday. And it’s not enough, E2 and the Natural Resources Defense Council said.
