California leads the way in solar, but they’ve only begun to harness the sun.

““There should be no rooftop in California without a solar panel,” Schwarzenegger said at a CA Solar Summit.

  • California leads the nations with over 500 megawatts of installed solar at 50,000 different installations.
  • The state has more than 60 percent of the nation’s installed solar photovoltaic capacity.
  • The California Solar Initiative which has spurred more than $2.8 billion worth of investment in solar projects throughout the state.

Schwarzenegger said that by developing new technologies and supporting them with wise public policies, California would be known as “the solar state.”

Officials in Arizona and Texas have also announced their ambitions to claim that title, a competition that benefits all three states — and the nation.”
