Tehachapi, California, November 16, 2010 - A view of the Tehachapi Wind Farm, a collection of about 5,000 wind turbines operated by over a dozen private companies. It is the second largest collection of wind generators in the world, however it ranks first in terms of output, collectively producing about 800 million kilowatt-hours of electricity. California is leading the nation in renewable energy. In 2002, California established its Renewable Portfolio Standard Program, with the goal of increasing the percentage of renewable energy in the state's electricity mix to 20 percent by 2017. The 2003 Integrated Energy Policy Report recommended accelerating that goal to 20 percent by 2010, and the 2004 Energy Report Update further recommended increasing the target to 33 percent by 2020. In 2006 under Senate Bill 107, California's Renewables Portfolio Standard (RPS) was created and codified the 20 percent goal. The RPS program requires electric utilities and providers to increase procurement from eligible renewable energy resources by at least 1 percent of their retail sales annually, until they reach 20% by 2010. On November 17, 2008, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger signed Executive Order S-14-08 requiring that California utilities reach the 33 percent renewables goal by 2020..
