The Latest: Brown Sees New California Energy Policy As Model

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) – California Gov. Jerry Brown says he hopes a law he’s signed moving California toward eliminating fossil fuels for electricity will serve as a model for other state and national governments. Brown is hosting a summit in San Francisco starting Wednesday that he hopes will “wake up the national leaders” on the need to confront climate change. Brown’s remarks came Monday during an interview with The Associated Press after he signed the bill setting a goal of generating all California electricity from clean sources by 2045. He says California is doing the opposite of the federal government when it comes to climate policy. Brown also says moving toward a regional electric grid is critical to California meeting its goals. A proposal to do so failed in the Legislature this year.
