California Governor Jerry Brown (D) signed three renewable energy bills into law September 22. Two measures (S.B. 585 and A.B. 1150) guarantee ongoing funding for rebates and incentives for projects that help to meet the state’s renewable and clean energy goals, and a third bill (S.B. 16) streamlines the permitting process for renewable energy facilities. Additionally, S.B. 585 provides an additional $200 million through the California Solar Initiative for nonresidential solar installations.
