PG&E, among the largest regulated US electric utilities, notes that last year was the first time that renewable energy deliveries – including solar, wind, biomass, small hydro-electric and geothermal – exceeded 20% for one year.
This performance gave it a slight surplus for the 2011-2013 compliance period, when renewable deliveries needed to average 20% a year under the mandate.
Since 2002, PG&E has signed 155 contracts for more than 10.6GW of eligible renewable power.
"PG&E has the cleanest energy portfolio among American electric utilities. More than 55% of our electricity comes from non-greenhouse gas emitting sources," claims John Conway, senior vice president of energy supply for PG&E.
"Through our own clean energy resources and power purchase agreements for solar, wind and other renewable fuels, we are working to grow our clean energy portfolio and do so in a way that is affordable for our customers," he adds.
