Celebrate California’s success in solar energy and help more home and business owners go solar during the third annual Solar Energy Month, October 2010. With solar systems providing clean, reliable energy at nearly 65,000 customer sites throughout California, Solar Energy Month provides a chance to show more people how to take advantage of the benefits of going solar today.
