California regulators are reporting that the state has hit a major milestone in renewable energy: more than 1 gigawatt—1,000 megawatts—of solar power has been installed through the California Solar Initiative, which encourages homeowners, businesses, local governments and nonprofit organizations to install solar panels on their roofs.
