CHSRA Enters MOU with State

The California High-Speed Rail Authority (CHSRA) and California Energy Commission have entered into a memorandum of understanding (MOU) that will allow the agencies to work together on implementing green technology and best practices during the design and construction of the high-speed rail system.

“California has always been a leader when it comes to using renewable energy, reaching our climate goals and fighting global warming,” said CHSRA Chief Executive Officer Jeff Morales. “This MOU with the energy commission is another step in the right direction that will help us build a first class high-speed rail system in our state.”

Commission Chairman Robert B. Weisenmiller noted that transportation is the single largest source of the state’s greenhouse gas emissions, saying, “The plan to power the [high-speed rail] system with 100 percent renewable energy, have zero net energy stations and use alternative fuels in support vehicles shows, once again, the state’s commitment to a more sustainable future.”
