SB 350:

Clean Energy and Pollution Reduction Act of 2015

Author: State Senator Kevin de León

SB 350 will mandate an increase of California's renewable energy use to 50% by 2030 and a doubling of energy efficiency over that same timeline. SB 350 is a climate change bill of historic proportions with aggressive targets. However, the bill was stripped of a provision to cut California’s petroleum usage by 50% in the next 15 years due to pressure from the oil industry, which spent many millions of dollars on a deceptive lobbying and media campaign, and, ultimately, the work of a group of oil industry-friendly Assembly Democrats.
