The writer John Fante once called Los Angeles "an empire carved out of cactus and dust." Today, it's a megacity full of bright lights and freeways, with a goal to reach 100% renewable energy by 2045. America's largest public utility, the LA Department of Water and Power (LADWP), asked the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) to help them figure out how to do it. The result was "LA100: The Los Angeles 100% Renewable Energy Study."
LA100 provides a case in climate success, as the rest of the nation works to realize President Biden's ambitious goal of 100 percent clean energy by 2035. Join New America’s Resource Security Program on June 16th at 12:00 p.m. EDT for a discussion about the path forward for Los Angeles -- and hopefully everyone else.
Follow the conversation online using #LA100 and following @PhaseZeroNA.
