It is often said that, if California were a separate country, it would be the 8th biggest economy in the world. Stunningly, solar is increasingly powering California's big and growing economy.
On February 7th at noon, utility scale solar provided 12% of California's electricity. Wow! And that stunning 12% does not include the massive amount of distributed solar deployed on roofs all over the Golden state.
Counting only big solar farms or utility scale solar facilities, solar now is generating at some peak hours as much as 12% of the electricity used in California. Just amazing!
