PG&E says a third of its power comes from renewable sources
March 16, 2017
• Power is from solar, wind, geothermal, biomass and hydroelectric
• Greenhouse gas-free portfolio nears 70 percent
The Central Valley’s and state’s largest utility says it generated 32.8 percent of its electricity last year from renewable sources including solar, wind, geothermal, biomass and hydroelectric.
That’s more than a 3 percent increase over 2015 and marks the highest percentage yet for the utility.
A total of 69.3 percent of PG&E’s electric power mix is from nuclear, large hydro and renewable sources of energy, the company says.
“Delivering this amount of renewable electricity strongly confirms PG&E’s continued commitment to a cleaner energy future for our customers and all of California,” says Geisha Williams, CEO and president, PG&E Corporation.
