First Solar (FSLR) has announced that it has completed production on a 2MW solar power plant for Southern California Edison which was installed on the rooftop of a commercial building in Fontana, California.  It’s the first project for SCE within a larger plan to install 250MW of solar power across commercial rooftops throughout Cali over the next 5 years.  First Solar (FSLR) will also engineer, manufacture and install the next project in Chino, expected to be a 1MW plant. 

“This innovative solar rooftop initiative is a natural extension of our industry leadership in renewable energy,” said Ted Craver, Edison International chairman and CEO. “We are driving solar technology forward and identifying creative new ways to integrate solar power into the electricity grid. A program of this scale could transform solar generation, helping bring costs down and providing us with another important way to meet the environmental challenges of the future.”

just think of all those factory rooftops just waiting to be used for solar energy. they are out of sight and exposed to maximum sunlight. a no brainer really.
