Greetings ,

Thanks for Spreading the Sunshine!

Our hats are off to the Californians throughout the Golden State who brightened the solar landscape during Solar Energy Month.

Thousands of residents and families attended solar fairs, conferences and workshops sponsored by the California Solar Initiative during October.

This is a record-breaking year for solar installations, and next year promises to bring even greater accomplishments with a new program of solar thermal incentives.

By harnessing the sun’s energy, we can power our homes and businesses, create green jobs and achieve greenhouse-gas reductions. Solar is an important part of our plan to meet our energy needs while preserving our natural resources and pumping up our economy.”
- Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger
