Citing the “existential threat of climate change,” Gov. Jerry Brown signed legislation Monday making California the first state to set a goal of 100 percent renewable energy by 2045, despite concerns about increased electricity costs.
“A few new turbines aren’t normally a big deal in the Golden State, which has been building wind farms for decades.
