San Francisco, CA, June 20, 2014 – Below is a statement from Steve Chadima, AEE Senior Vice President of Communications and Director of California Initiatives, addressing today’s budget signing by Governor Brown.
“The budget signed by Governor Brown today includes provisions vital to setting an energy agenda that will lead us to 2050. The advanced energy industry applauds the Governor for increasing financing dollars for energy efficiency improvements and clean energy installation in schools under Prop 39 and supporting extension of the Self-Generation Incentive Program. As with all state dollars, including cap and trade revenue, effective implementation will be critical.
