According to an analysis of every California legislative district released by E2 in August 2018, more than 519,000 Californians now work in clean energy industries, and more than $49 billion in public and private clean energy economy investments have been injected into the state. This job growth and investment is driven by California’s climate policies, including its leading Renewables Portfolio Standard and landmark cap-and-trade legislation, which reduces pollution while increasing clean energy production and energy efficiency.
The state’s climate policies also have cut emissions by the equivalent of taking 17.6 million cars off the road and more than two thirds of the $2 billion in clean energy investments stemming from cap-and-trade have gone specifically towards benefiting disadvantaged communities around the state.
