A push to electrify buildings and transportation — and make sure the grid is powered by clean energy and can handle the added load — got a boost this week with a package of bills by state Sen. Josh Becker clearing the Senate.

The San Mateo Democrat has made a pragmatic approach to climate policy a staple of his legislative efforts since being elected in 2020, and the bills, he said, are part of a roadmap to get the state to net zero carbon emission by 2045, a goal set by former Gov. Jerry Brown in 2018.
