San Joaquin Valley Clean Energy Transition

California’s San Joaquin Valley is in a unique position to benefit from the clean energy transition given its existing industry, land, skilled workforce, and clean energy resources. The transition also presents an opportunity to address some of the significant challenges the Valley faces, including water constraints, transitioning agricultural land, pollution, and socio-economic disparities.

This report is the culmination of a year-long effort led by CATF to engage local leaders on what a clean energy future might look like for the San Joaquin Valley. Key findings underscore the potential for clean energy to stimulate the Valley’s economy, create diverse job opportunities, and ensure equitable distribution of benefits across the region.
