Solar power generation in California reached an all-time high Friday, with enough energy to power more than 1.5 million homes, replacing what was lost by the closure of the leaky old San Onofre nuke state officials said Sunday.
The record of 2,071 megawatts hit at 12:59 p.m. Friday, said Steven Greenlee with the California Independent System Operator, which operates the state's electricity grid.
Every solar panel we build is driving efficiencies that make the next ones thinner, cheaper, more energy efficient.
Getting into solar and other renewables now is actually going to make energy cheaper in the long run, and boost our economy. California is READY TO GO!
