The Solar Valley Consortium is pleased to announce a new webinar to present Countdown to 2045, Edison International’s analysis of the steps that California must take to meet the 2045 targets for a clean electricity grid and to reach carbon neutrality.

The presentation will be delivered by Stephen Collins, SCE’s Manager for Strategic Planning, and the lead author of Countdown to 2045. The presentation is thoughtful and comprehensive. In addition, three expert respondents will comment on the ideas presented.
