CEC is committed to creating a more resilient and just region in the face of climate change. Through our work with the Central Coast Climate Justice Network and elsewhere, our vision includes an end to racial injustices and their resulting environmental inequities.

In a recent vote, California lawmakers voted to pass a bill that would require a third of our state’s electricity to come from clean energy sources, such as solar power and wind energy, by 2020.

If passed by Governor Jerry Brown, this innovative bill would place California as a national leader for increasing the use of renewable energy – within this decade. The bill gives California a significant boost to the clean energy and green technology market – and their investors. Proponents of the bill, penned by state Senator Joe Simitian of Palo Alto, estimate the approach could mean creating as many as 100,000 jobs.

The bill comes at a time when some federal legislators have taken aim at banning EPA spending to regulate greenhouse gas emissions.

On a local Santa Barbara level, CEC has been working to support renewable energy projects with the vision that 100% of our electricity comes from renewable energy sources within one generation. We want to see our homes, businesses and cars powered by clean, renewable and local sources of power. Read what CEC is doing and how you can help.
