2025 Senate Bill 100 Report Land Use Workshop

January 25, 2024

CSAC will be joining the California Energy Commission (CEC), the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC), and the California Air Resources Board (CARB) as they host a workshop to discuss approaches for examining the environmental and land use implications of reaching the state’s SB 100 clean energy targets. CSAC Legislative Advocate Ada Waelder will serve on a panel among other representatives from local government, California Native American tribes, industry, and environmental groups to discuss coordination on land use and SB 100 implementation.

SB 100 (De León, Chapter 312, Statutes of 2018) set a 2045 goal of powering all retail electricity sold in California and state agency electricity needs with renewable and zero-carbon resources. By 2030, at least 60 percent of California’s electricity needs to be renewable and eventually achieve 100 percent clean electricity in the state. SB 100 requires the CEC, CPUC, and CARB to develop and submit a joint-agency report to the legislature, with the next scheduled report due in 2025.

The 2021 SB 100 Joint Agency Report, made several land-use-related recommendations:

  1. analyze projected land-use impacts of scenarios and opportunities to reduce environmental impacts in future analyses;
  2. include non-energy benefits, such as land use impacts; and
  3. coordinate future system modeling and land-use impacts with the Climate Smart Strategy
