SA Renewables closely monitors the political and legal landscape to ensure that our projects
have the greatest chance of success. In response to recent governmental actions at the
California state level, we have chosen biogas plants that meet the highest standards by
processing methane and reduce greenhouse gas emissions from stored and land-distributed farm
wastes by 94%.
California is very active in promoting renewable energy and greenhouse gas reduction:
- In September 2016, California passed a law SB No. 1383 requiring a 40% reduction of 2013
methane levels by 2030. For more information click HERE.
- In September 2018, California passed a law SB No. 100 mandating a target of 60% of
electricity from renewable sources. For more information click HERE.
- In September 2018, California passed a law SB No. 1440 requiring the Public Utilities
Commission, in consultation with the State Air Resources Board, to consider adopting
specific bio-methane procurement targets or goals for each California gas corporation. For

- According to Executive Order B-55-18 from 2018, California should be carbon neutral by
2045. For more information click HERE.
