As California lawmakers prepare for another round of debating the best way to combat climate change, a new study says the San Joaquin Valley is benefiting economically from the state's policies on global warming.

The report comes from Next 10, a public policy think tank that partnered with researchers at UC Berkeley to crunch the numbers.

F. Noel Perry, a venture capitalist who founded Next 10, said they studied the valley because it has struggled with poor air quality and an economy that's sluggish when compared to the state's coast.

In the policy arena, the distance is widening between blue and red states over whether to promote, or resist, the shift away from fossil fuels toward renewable energy sources like solar and wind. But the economics of generating electricity from alternative sources are growing more attractive for states across the political divide.

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.

When people think of the phrase “disruptive technologies,” one of the first things that might pop into their heads is a Silicon Valley start-up. But right now, perhaps the most interesting market disruption we are witnessing is in energy, as old ways of powering our economy give way to advanced technologies.

And as we found when compiling Next 10’s 2016 California Green Innovation Index, which presents fresh economic data from 26 metro regions, clean energy leadership can be found across California — not just in traditional innovation hotspots.

Fresno is the state’s top region for industrial solar power, according to a report from a San Francisco nonprofit.

The amount of solar on Fresno-area warehouses and distribution centers – 11,132 kilowatts – is larger than the amount installed in the Silicon Valley and the greater Los Angeles areas combined, the 2016 California Green Innovation Index said.
