“In 2006, I signed the law to create the California Solar Initiative, a world – class solar program that is transforming the energy economy and creating a sustainable solar industry with goal of 3,000 Megawatts of clean and renewable solar power, thereby reducing output of greenhouse gas emissions by 3 million tons. Solar energy is a huge step toward meeting our long – term renewable energy and climate change goals, and further proof that being good to the environment is also good for the bottom line.
