The Bay Area Council supports changes in California’s energy policy to support a reliable supply of energy for the region provided in a market-driven structure that lowers costs. Employers and consumers alike must have a reliable, affordable, clean, high-quality power supply to sustain a prosperous economy and high quality of life. The portfolio of energy options must contribute to a carbon neutral economy whereby energy sources, conservation, and energy efficiency measures continually reduce net carbon contributions to help meet the greenhouse gas emissions reduction targets established in AB 32, the Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006.
