The California Public Utilities Commission yesterday approved a $2.9 billion program to make California one of the world's largest producers of solar power.
The California Solar Initiative, backed by Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, aims to add 3,000 megawatts of solar energy over 11 years through the installation of 1 million rooftop solar energy systems on homes, businesses, farms, schools, and public buildings.
