Los Angeles, California (PRWEB) May 14, 2013
2013 has already been a record setting year for the solar industry in California. In Los Angeles solar installation is at an all time high and back in March, California set a solar record by having 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.
The state has reached that record solar several times since March, with many predicting that the record levels could soon be a new normal.
Leading the way in the solar milestones was (877) 20-SOLAR The Solar Center of Woodland Hills – the experts in Los Angeles solar installation and Southern California’s leading provider of solar energy systems.
All told, on the record setting days, 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.
In Los Angeles solar is growing fast and 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.
