California leading the way with plan to add solar power to 1 million homes

by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, NaturalNews Editor

California is once again leading the way in renewable energy and solar power by offering a plan that would add solar power to 1 million homes in California over the next 10 years. The plan, backed by the California Environmental Protection Agency and Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, is designed to reduce the state's dependence on outside sources of electricity, while also demonstrating that solar powered homes can be economically feasible in the long run.

This is a fantastic proposal by the state of California, and if successful, it will demonstrate to the rest of the United States, and even other countries, that solar power is a very smart way to reduce any state's dependence on outside sources of electricity. It's good for the environment, it's good for the economy, and it's good for security.

As new technological breakthroughs emerge in solar power, this sort of plan will be even easier to implement across the country and around the world. Solar cells are getting cheaper, thanks to breakthroughs in manufacturing processes, and the efficiency of solar cells is similarly increasing. The result will be far more affordable solar material that will have high efficiency, long life and greatly reduced upfront costs.
