California today has 10,700 megawatts of wind and solar capacity operating. That's about 15% of America's combined 70,000 plus megawatts of wind and solar.
No doubt, California already is a renewable energy leader, but the Golden State is just getting started. California will build another 8,000 megawatts of solar and wind capacity by 2020.
My strong belief, however, is that California will build much more than 8,000 megawatts of solar and wind by 2020. Why?
The size of the solar boom will surprise nearly all of us.
