California-based Pacific Gas and Electric Co. (PG&E) says it delivered 22.5% of its power from eligible renewable resources in 2013 and is on track to meet the state's 33% by 2020 renewable portfolio standard.

PG&E says this marks the first time that its renewable energy deliveries - including solar, wind, biomass, small hydroelectric and geothermal - exceeded 20% for one year and gave the utility a slight surplus for the 2011-2013 compliance period, when renewable deliveries needed to average 20% a year to meet California's renewable energy mandate.

Since 2002, PG&E has signed 155 contracts for more than 10.6 GW of eligible renewable power.

"More than 55 percent of our electricity comes from non-greenhouse gas emitting sources," says John Conway, senior vice president of energy supply for PG&E. "Through our own clean energy resources and power purchase agreements for solar, wind and other renewable fuels, we are working to grow our clean energy portfolio and do so in a way that is affordable for our customers."
