ABSTRACT
This article examines what the Western states are doing to tackle issues on climate change and to curb their greenhouse gas emissions. In Arizona, a renewable portfolio standard requires the state's utilities to purchase 15 percent of the state's electricity from renewable sources by 2025. In California, a renewable portfolio standard requires electricity retailers to purchase 20 percent of their electricity from renewable resources by 2017. And in Colorado, a voter-mandated renewable portfolio standard will force the state's largest utilities to obtain three percent of their electricity from renewable energy resources by 2007.
