California’s growing economy is helping working people get ahead and small businesses succeed. But to sustain our economic growth and meet our ambitious climate targets, the State must take action to allow for the full integration of our Western energy grid. Doing so will provide Californians with cheaper, cleaner, more reliable energy.
Secure California’s Energy Future is a campaign advocating for the integration of our Western grid. A fully integrated Western regional grid will save Californians billions of dollars in electricity costs, stop the waste of affordable clean energy and increase reliability — while maintaining state control over our own energy policies. And by powering our economic future, we’ll create good-paying clean energy jobs and help small businesses thrive.
