Target has pledged to put solar panels on a quarter of its stores, but the company could cut pollution dramatically and even save its customers money by putting panels on all of its nearly 2,000 rooftops in North America, advocacy group Environment California said today.
“Today will shine bright in California history, bringing cleaner air, more local jobs and a more secure energy future for all Californians,” said Michelle Kinman, clean energy advocate for Environment California Research & Policy Center. “We applaud the CPUC for listening to the outpouring of support from Californians all over the state to protect net metering and uphold Governor Brown's vision for climate and clean power leadership.”
Following on last month’s announcement that California has joined with 12 governments in North America and Europe to set a goal for all new passenger vehicles sold in their jurisdictions to be zero-emission vehicles by 2050, Environment California Research & Policy Center released an updated list documenting the accelerating support for electric vehicles among local leaders across the state.
Environment California Research and Policy Center is part of The Public Interest Network, which operates and supports organizations committed to a shared vision of a better world and a strategic approach to getting things done.
