The statute requires an 85-percent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions and a net-zero economy by 2050, while maintaining a focus on climate justice, a just transition to a clean-energy economy, grid reliability and state competitiveness.  The statute also includes ambitious requirements for improvements in energy efficiency and deployment of renewable sources of electricity.
