"Pasadena can transition to 100% clean electricity by 2035 and do it cheaper than staying with gas. Since Pasadena has to reduce CO2 emissions 40% city-wide by 2030 anyways (California law SB-32), the lowest-hanging fruit CO2-wise is to go after the electricity supply. It’s also the cheapest way, since reputable projections show that wind, solar and batteries will be the least expensive form of energy by 2030."
