In the 30 plus years up to 2012, California installed about 1,000 megawatts of solar capacity. Then, Kaboom!
Last year, California installed another 1,000 megawatts of rooftop, distributed solar, more than doubling it, in just 12 months to a total of 2,000 megawatts.
According to the California Solar Energy Industries Association, California now has more than 4,000 megawatts of combined utility-scale and rooftop solar capacity. Totally amazing!
