CA's Top Cities for Solar

Environment California has released a study that shows significant growth in the state's solar power construction, and ranks cities by how many solar roofs they have. San Diego is tops.

"California's solar power market is broad, as supported by the findings of this report. A healthy and growing solar power market is taking hold in the state's large coastal cities, tiny mountain hamlets, and suburban communities of the Central Valley. The cities with the greatest amount of solar power today include San Diego with 2,267 solar roofs totaling 19,452 kilowatts, San Francisco with 1,493 solar roofs totaling 12,763 kilowatts, and Los Angeles with 1,432 solar roofs totaling 13,442 kilowatts, and, surprisingly not far behind, are the cities of Fresno, Bakersfield and Clovis with more than 700 solar roofs each."
