Environment California is a non-profit environmental organization dedicated to clean air, clean water and protecting beautiful places. For the past 20 years we have worked to move our state toward 100% clean energy.  We worked on the first Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS), SB 1078 by Senator Sher and the subsequent ones ending with SB 100 by Senator de Leon. We have also worked on the Million Solar Roofs Initiative, which was completed last year and numerous programs for energy efficiency and conservation.
