New state regulations will give Lodi wiggle room in meeting strict renewable energy standards by 2020 without major rate increases, according to city officials who briefed Lodi City Council members on the issue Tuesday.

As part of a state effort to protect the environment and reduce reliance on nonrenewable energy sources — coal, natural gas and nuclear power — the city is required to have 33 percent of its energy portfolio include renewable energy sources such as solar or wind energy by 2020. Lodi is slightly exceeding the current 20 percent renewable energy standard.
