The Solar Center of Woodland Hills helps California break solar records by reaching a major solar energy milestone.
California set a new solar record on Sunday morning at 10:00 am as the state's power grid had 1,500 megawatts of solar power entering the grid for the first time in history. However, the record was quickly crushed an hour later when the amount of solar power entering the state's grid reached 1,656 megawatts.
That solar output held again Monday, according to preliminary figures from the California Independent System Operator (CaISO).
Leading the way in the solar milestones was the Solar Center of Woodland Hills – Southern California’s leading provider of solar energy systems.
All told, on Sunday, California's solar power capacity provided 15,394 megawatt-hours of power to the grid -- enough power for every Californian to keep a 100-watt bulb lit for four hours. Not that that would be the best use of the energy provided, seeing as it was produced while the sun was up.
Despite the setting the new records California is still way behind in solar power when compared to the world’s leading producer of solar energy – Germany. On a typical day in 2012, Germany generated about 78,000 megawatt hours of solar power, five times more than California’s production on Sunday.
Consumers wishing to jump on board the solar bandwagon are urged to call the Solar Center to see if they qualify for a solar system at zero out of pocket costs.
