Law360, New York (January 3, 2013, 1:12 PM EST) -- California continues to be a leader in promoting the use of renewable energy sources — both on the utility scale and through distributed generation. In 2012, the California State Legislature adopted bills designed to: encourage the safe production and distribution of bio-derived fuels; reduce the cost of permitting solar energy systems; promote distributed generation through net energy metering arrangements; and to provide additional funding to maximize energy use savings and renewable energy production.
These bills and other energy-related bills are summarized below.
