SB 350 Electricity Sector Greenhouse Gas Planning Targets
The Clean Energy and Pollution Reduction Act (Senate Bill (SB) 350) established 2030 targets for energy efficiency and renewable electricity, among other actions, aimed at reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and reducing use of fossil energy. To help ensure that GHG emissions reductions are realized, large electricity providers are required to develop and submit Integrated Resource Plans (IRP) that detail how the utility will meet their customers' resource needs, reduce GHG emissions, and ramp up deployment of renewable and zero-carbon resources. SB 350 directs the California Air Resources Board (CARB), in coordination with the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) and California Energy Commission (CEC), to establish 2030 GHG emissions targets for the electricity sector in general and each electricity provider (including investor-owned utilities, publicly owned utilities, electric service providers, and community choice aggregators).
