Exciting Announcement

The Budget Act of 2024 (AB-107) has passed through the Senate and Assembly! This is the legislature’s final version of the State budget, which will be negotiated with the Governor. We expect the final budget deal to be released next week.

$33.2 million is earmarked in the budget for CNIP to boost Market Match projects.

The Legislature has rejected the Governor's cuts to CNIP and decided to revive the program with funds from the Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund. This means the full $35 million for CNIP is back on track!
