Jul 4, 2012 - Nilima Choudhury - pv-tech.org
In 2011, California became the first US state to install more than 1GW of customer-generated solar energy, according to figures published by the California Public Utilities Commission. The report, California Solar Initiative (CSI) also demonstrates that 311MW were installed in the investor-owned utility territories last year. The CSI program has received a budget of US$2.4 billion and is aiming to reach 1,940MW of solar capacity by the end of 2016.
“California’s solar success is unmatched in the nation,” said CPUC president Michael Peevey. “The CSI Program is on track to reach 1,000MW in installations by the end of the year.”
Other highlights of the report include:
With more than 122,000 sites, CPUC states that California is well on its way to reach its goal, notably as a result of 97MW having already been installed in the first quarter of 2012. Solar capacity has increased by 38%, with a 29% increase in the number of properties going solar from the previous year.
