Business and policymakers around the globe are waking up to the scope of the global warming crisis. With this crisis comes great opportunity: we currently have the technology and capital to support the transition to the next energy paradigm—the global implementation of 100-percent renewable energy.
To catalyze this shift, we propose a challenge along the lines of President John F. Kennedy’s 1961 “moonshot” challenge to land a man on the moon and return him safely by the end of the decade. We offer a similarly ambitious and game-changing challenge: 100-percent carbon-free, nuclear-free electricity in California within 10 years.
One hundred percent renewable community microgrids are the future for the State of California. For a full explanation of the concept, please visit the Clean Energy Moonshot project page.
We are working to create a community microgrid in Santa Barbara County to help address the threat of a massive, extended blackout. For more information about this effort visit our Santa Barbara Reliable, Resilient, Renewable project page.
