California Breaks Solar Record, Generates Enough Electricity for 6 Million Homes

Solar cells are part of California's solar revolution

On July 12, several large solar plants in the Golden State briefly produced a record 8,030 megawatts of electricity, according to the California Independent System Operator (ISO), the organization that runs most of the state’s power grid.

That is nearly twice the amount of solar energy produced two years ago – and that is only counting the electricity produced at plants. Thousands of rooftop solar panels around the state have the capacity to produce an additional 50 percent of that record amount.
