This article discusses the steps Los Angeles is taking to replace natural gas with renewables.
Los Angeles is abandoning its $5 billion plan to rebuild three aging natural gas-fired power plants, deciding instead to phase out the plants and invest in renewable energy, Reuters reported. Mayor Eric Garcetti argued that the new strategy is necessary if the city hopes to achieve its goal of being carbon-neutral by 2050.
“This is the beginning of the end of natural gas in Los Angeles,” Garcetti said in a statement. “The climate crisis demands that we move more quickly to end dependence on fossil fuel, and that’s what today is all about.”
