The City of Sacramento was named the fasting growing solar city in the state. This statement issued from a report released today by the Environment California Research & Policy Center also showed that solar rooftop installations tripled in Sacramento over the last 3 years. “No other big city in the state has seen this kind of growth during the past two years,” said Bernadette Del Chiaro, director of clean energy programs at Environment California, an environmental advocacy group.
This is great news coming at such a needed time for the city bountiful in sunshine. Shifting to more renewable energy is overall growth for Sacramento and its surrounding neighborhoods; it’s also right in-line with Sacramento’s general plan. President of Aztec Solar, Ed Murray, a devoted advocate for solar for over 30 years is not surprised by the report. He believes that Sacramento is the perfect solar city; with rising utility costs, committed citizens and financial rebates, it’s the best time to start saving with solar energy.
