My New LiverCassie was born with a congenital liver disorder called Biliary Atresia. Simon was able to donate a part of his liver to Cassie in 2010.   Based on their personal experience and desire to give back, Simon and Cassie recently started My New Liver Foundation, a not-for-profit organization, to promote awareness of the awesome fact that the human liver is the only human organ that regenerates which allows any healthy person the potential to save others who are in need of a new liver to survive.

For the first time, we are talking about a clean energy grid at a National Level (2035). In California, transportation is still the largest contributor to carbon. To meet the current targets in 2045, a major change needs to occur. So far electricity changes have been the most significant improvement, it was the easiest to do first.
 
Girish then gave a history of Community Choice Aggregators (CCA) like SVCE. Started in 2017 with a mission of 100% clean energy and is now 13 communities.
 
In addition to clean energy SVCE offers programs to help reduce emissions. The focus is on transportation and new buildings (reduce gas).
 
SVCE has had a major impact; 24% reduction since 2015 baseline and almost $70M in customer savings,
 
Major future emphasis is to improve the infrastructure and now focusing on building plans to reduce natural gas usage.
