Amidst all the focus in Washington DC over inauguration crowd sizes, at least one state is instead focusing on matters affecting jobs, security, and quality of life–renewable energy!  A bill (SD.1932) introduced in Massachusetts would require the state to use 100% renewable energy for electricity by 2035 and also seeks to deeply cut fossil fuels from the heating and transportation sectors as well.  The proposed bill, which is sponsored by Representatives Garballey, Decker, and Eldridge, would require the transportation sector to use 50% renewable energy by 2030, and would cause the state to use 100% renewable energy by 2050 for all energy usage, “including the energy consumed for electricity, heating and cooling, transportation, agricultural uses, industrial uses, and all other uses by all residents, institutions, businesses, state and municipal agencies, and other entities operating within its borders.”   The sponsors describe the bill as creating jobs and providing energy security.  The proposed bill is available here.
