by

“AEE congratulates Governor Brown on his inauguration and welcomes his continued leadership of the state of California. In his address today, Gov. Brown set ambitious but achievable goals to increase the use of renewable energy, reduce the use of petroleum, and make our buildings more energy efficient. Working toward these targets will not only benefit the environment but also grow the advanced energy industry, which is expected to employ 500,000 people in California by the end of this year. We look forward to working with Gov. Brown and the legislature to reach these goals and create a prosperous California powered by secure, clean, affordable energy.”

-- Steve Chadima, Senior Vice President of Communications and Director of California Initiatives, Advanced Energy Economy
