California approves ambitious clean-energy bill

The California State Senate approved an ambitious clean-energy bill. According to the LA Times:

The state Senate on Thursday approved a measure requiring California utilities to buy 33% of their electricity from wind, solar and other renewable energy sources by the year 2020, with supporters arguing it will help recharge the economy by creating jobs.

This is a step up from California’s previous requirement, where  20% of energy sources was supposed to come from renewable energy by 2010. Some utilities did not meet that standard.

Do you think California will meet this goal?
