Doesn’t most of our electricity come from natural gas?

Currently, a significant portion of electricity in California is generated from natural gas. However, the State mandates an increasing amount of renewable content over the next few decades, with the goal to reach 100% renewable electricity by 2045. This means the electric grid is quickly moving away from natural gas as an electricity resource. In Santa Barbara, we are accelerating this timeline by launching Santa Barbara Clean Energy in October of 2021, which will offer100% carbon-free electricity to the City.
