California Passes 1 Gigawatt Rooftop Solar Milestone: Study
The Environment California Research & Policy Center has released a new report documenting that California has installed more than 1 gigawatt of rooftop solar power. To put that figure in perspective, only five other countries worldwide have achieved that amount of rooftop solar power. The study also notes that the state's Million Solar Roofs initiative is on pace to meet its goal of installing its legislatively mandated 3 gigawatts of solar capacity by 2016.
