Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger supports California's renewable portfolio standard, which promotes green buildings, and vows to take steps to improve reliability of the power grid. During his campaign for governor, he made energy a plank in his platform of issues. In fact, he vowed to work with the California Public Utility Commission to implement California's renewable portfolio standard of 20% in 2010, seven years earlier than the current target of 2017.
