May 3, 2016 (San Diego) - On Monday, Mayor Kevin Faulconer released a report outlining his plan to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in San Diego and to create renewable energy sources, KUSI reports.

The $130 million plan requests that San Diego run on 100 percent renewable energy by the year 2035.  It also aims to cut greenhouse gas emissions in half.
"I'm proud that our climate action plan will help our communities thrive and create the green jobs of tomorrow," Faulconer said in a speech on Monday in Mission Beach.  "This plan ensures that San Diego stays on track to meet state targets to significantly reduce greenhouse gases by 2050...this is a plan for creating economic opportunity for every San Diego family and community."

The plan is a proposal for the 2017 fiscal year.
