California lawmakers have adopted a plan for the state to transition to an energy grid devoid of electricity generated from fossil fuels by 2045. The state assembly passed the bill on Tuesday and it now awaits Gov. Jerry Brown's (D) signature. If enacted, it would put California on track to become the first state to adopt a power grid consisting of 100 percent renewable energy.
