Business Journal: Region's Green-Tech Industry Grows Brighter

Share | |
(Sacramento, CA)
Wednesday, September 8, 2010
The six-county region has the most photovoltaic capacity per-capita in the country, easily outpacing the much-larger Bay Area. Sacramento's solar-kilowatt capacity - basically installed solar panels - increased to 217 for every 10,000 residents.  That's almost 100 kilowatts more than a few weeks ago.
An independent report compiles data about large solar-panel projects to much-smaller efforts, and the Sacramento region edged the second-place Bay Area by 30 kilowatts.  It's a big deal, especially for community leaders and economic officials looking to attract - and keep - clean-tech companies, while also providing some bragging rights.
