San Diego #2 in Nation for Solar

Solar installations in San Diego have grown 76.6 percent in two years, making the city the metropolitan area with the second-highest number of solar panels in the country, according to a report released by an environmental group.

“San Diego really shines when it comes to solar power,” Michelle Kinman, clean energy advocate for Environment California Research and Policy Center, said at a news conference Friday.

In its annual report, Environment California looked at 64 cities nationwide. With 189 megawatts of installed photovoltaic capacity at the end of 2015, San Diego trails only Los Angeles, which ended the year at 215 megawatts.
