As California readies for rapid electric vehicle growth, the state’s energy system will require upgrades, but the costs are likely to be low compared to the benefits, according to a new report from Next 10.
California is on track to meet its clean-energy goals a decade early thanks in part to communities demanding and delivering renewable energy faster and cheaper than utilities can, according to a report released this morning.
A new report looks at the impact alternative energy programs — called community choice aggregation — will have on California’s power grid. The analysis was made by researchers from the UCLA Luskin Center for Innovation and funded by the non-partisan think tank, Next 10.
California is in the midst of a debate over whether to integrate its grid into a broader network or maintain tighter control over its electricity policy and supply. California's renewables industry could shed jobs under a broader regionalization of the electric grid, but the move would be a net-plus for employment, the new report concludes.
