Progress to Date – State Partnership Sub-goals

• Minimize dependence on fossil fuels

– Reduce power consumption

• Reduce consumption at least 3% per yr and 30% by 2015

– Reduce petroleum use in ground transportation (TBD)

• Develop renewable energy resources

– Maximize clean alternative energy

• 10% renewable by 2010, 15% by 2015, 25% by 2020, 40% by 2030

• 100% of new on-base distributed generation electricity will be renewable with the following exceptions:

– Fuel fired electric plants will be biofuel capable and will use biofuel when feasible
