A plan proposed by Southern California Edison (SCE) for the largest U.S. installation of advanced solar panels on otherwise unused large commercial rooftops across Southern California has been approved the California Public Utilities Commission (PUC), SCE says.
During the next five years, SCE will install, own and operate 250 MW of solar generating capacity. The utility also will conduct competitive solicitations offering long-term power contracts to independent solar power providers, who will install an additional 250 MW, bringing to 500 MW the total generating capacity of the project.
Together, the initiatives form the largest photovoltaic program ever undertaken, according to SCE.
