“California’s homes are being strengthened with clean technology – solar power to generate electricity and efficiency measures to do more with every watt and every drop of water. Decades of work by Los Angeles businesses, local leaders and environmentalists have led to environmental and economic success: California has more solar energy capacity than any state, and a larger economy than any state.

This includes the Feed-in Tariff for rooftop solar installations authorized by the LA City Council in 2012.
