Gov. Jerry Brown signed into law a bill on September 10, that sets a goal of 100 percent clean electricity for California by 2045. Jerry Brown signed a bill Monday that aims to eliminate fossil fuel use for electricity by 2045 and serves as a rebuke to USA withdrawal from the Paris climate accord.

It also requires that 50 percent of the state's electricity come from renewable energy by 2026 and 60 percent by 2030, up from the current level of 32 percent.
He rejected the criticism and said that California's approach to climate change relies on curbing emissions from a variety of sources, including oil.
"This bill and the executive order put California on a path to meet the goals of Paris and beyond", Brown said.
"Have no illusions", Brown said.
