California’s growing economy is helping working people get ahead and small businesses succeed. But to sustain our economic growth and meet our ambitious clean energy goals, the California Legislature must take action to integrate our Western power 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 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.
