The Valley Industry & Commerce Association announced disappointment that Gov. Jerry Brown on Monday signed SB 100, creating a law requiring 60 percent of electricity in California be generated from renewable sources by 2030.
The Van Nuys business advocacy group said the law will add “expensive and unfeasible mandates on energy production in California.”
“This is ridiculous,” VICA President Stuart Waldman said in a statement. “Experts know that 100 percent renewable energy simply isn’t feasible without increasing rates to unaffordable levels for small businesses and families. … The governor has signed a bill that jeopardizes energy choice, affordability and reliability.”
SB 100 was authored by State Sen. Kevin de León (D-Los Angeles).
