Supporting a Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Neutral Future
The time has come for BWP to take meaningful strides in addressing this generation’s greatest challenge – climate change. The cost to obtain renewable energy is simply more expensive than coal and natural gas. This investment is necessary to combat climate change, which has been driving extreme weather patterns in our region. In recent years, we have been hit with wildfires that burn longer and wider, and we face persistent drought conditions. Reducing GHG emissions in our electric supply is necessary to slow down these impacts and is in alignment with California’s plan to have zero GHG electricity by 2045, and the City’s plan to be GHG neutral by 2040, with which we must comply.
