Despite concerns regarding the economic and employment impacts of the state’s climate policies, a new study says that the San Joaquin Valley is in fact benefiting economically from California’s ambitious policies on global warming.

The first comprehensive, academic study on the climate policies was commissioned by Next 10 — a think tank based in San Francisco that aims to educate Californians on important issues, breaking them down in order to make them easier to understand.

The San Joaquin Valley is reaping more than $13 billion in economic benefits from California’s climate change policies, according to the first comprehensive academic cost-benefit study.

The report shows that California’s renewable energy requirements for investor-owned utilities gave the San Joaquin Valley the biggest economic boost. Construction and operation of renewable energy projects have created 31,000 jobs since 2002. The state’s cap-and-trade policies that reduce carbon emissions were also examined.

Solar energy generation and adoption of zero-emission vehicles are surging throughout California, and the Sacramento area is contributing significantly to that clean-tech momentum, according to a new report by Next 10, the San Francisco nonprofit that promotes growth of California’s clean economy and evaluates various state issues.

Next 10’s eighth annual California Green Innovation Index said statewide solar generation has exploded by 1,378 percent in just five years; ZEV registrations have increased 244 percent in just two years.
