In 10 years, a quarter of existing Sacramento and West Sacramento homes will be all-electric, a quarter of all food will be locally sourced and 70 percent of all newly registered vehicles will be zero emission.

That’s if the goals in a new draft climate plan created by mayors Darrell Steinberg and Christopher Cabaldon’s climate commission come to fruition.

Steinberg and Cabaldon launched the Mayors’ Commission on Climate Change in November 2018 to craft recommendations to achieve carbon zero in both cities by 2045. “Carbon zero,” also known as “carbon neutrality,” means that net greenhouse gas emissions equal zero.

Wednesday, a draft version of the report was released to the public.
