Southern California Edison Tops Solar Power Installs
If it seems like there are an awful lot of your neighbors with solar panels nowadays, you might be right. Southern California Edison (SCE), which serves a significant chunk of Southern California, says it has been ranked number one in the U.S. in terms of the amount of solar power connected to its grid. SCE said it connected 1,648 megawatts of solar energy to the grid last year, including both residential and commercial power, plus utility power-purchase-agreements (PPAs). The company said that is a 31 percent increase over the 1,258 megawatts connected in 2015. The rankings came from the Smart Electric Power Alliance. The number two ranking on the list was Pacific Gas & Electric.
