This past month, Governor Jerry Brown signed a historic executive order to make California carbon-free by 2045. The recently passed bill aims to take dramatic steps towards reducing the negative impacts of climate change and will require the entirety of California’s electricity come from clean, carbon-free sources. Here at Planet OS, we provide the big data infrastructure to help renewable energy companies transform the way climate data is used in their organizations. As our team members have extensive experience working with climate and renewable energy-related data sets, we want to explore the feasibility and potential execution of this bill.
