Reduce greenhouse gas emissions
The clean Microgrid technology, that AB XXX would allow, runs on fuel cells, not combustion. It would produce 60% less greenhouse gases than existing electrical grids, and emit virtually no air pollutants.
Save millions of gallons of water
AB XXX would promote electrical grids that use 99.6% less water than the grids they would be replacing - creating power while saving hundreds of millions of gallons of our precious resource.
AB XXX would give hospitals, fire departments, the military, and others access to clean, clean, backup power that is virtually immune to power outages. When the lights go out - we can't have those we depend on be without power.
Respond to rising threat of wildfires
In 2018, California wildfires burned nearly four times as much land as a typical year - almost a million acres. This knocked out power for millions of Californians. AB XXX would ensure that vital services and institutions have clean, reliable backup power to keep the lights on.
AB XXX WOULD PROTECT CALIFORNIANS BY ALLOWING NEW CLEAN MICROGRID TECHNOLOGY
WHAT'S A MICROGRID?
A Microgrid is a distributed, on-site electric power solution that is redefining the electric power market and transforming how power is generated and delivered.
AB XXX would promote new, cleaner Microgrid technologies that will:
Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions
Save Millions of Gallons of Water
Keep Californians safe
Respond to the Growing Threat of Wildfires
