A paradigm shift is occurring in California’s energy environment. The shift, eventually becoming national in scope, features an increasing turn toward renewable energy sources (wind, solar, geo-thermal) and away from traditional fossil sources. While many Californians think this is a good idea - - going increasingly green and sustainable - - others are not so sure. But how does it all fit? Do we have the necessary capacity and infrastructure to accommodate this paradigm shift in energy? Who does it most benefit? Who pays? The Pat Brown Institute presented this program, hosted by KPCC.
