San Diego generates more power from grid-connected solar panels on residential, commercial and government buildings than any other city in California, according to an analysis released Tuesday by the Environment California Research & Policy Center.
"It's no longer just liberal coastal homeowners going solar," said Bernadette Del Chiaro, director of the research and policy center's clean energy programs. "It's really conservative areas, really liberal areas and everywhere in between."
It seems North State cities' investment in solar power is paying-off. A report released by Environment California shows Chico produced more solar energy than any other city in California with a population over 50,000.
