California Solar Forecast Bumped By 14% Over 4 Years By Solar Mandate

California's move to require new homes in the state to have solar panels from 2020 will have a positive net impact on residential solar installations of almost 650 MW from 2020 through 2023. Builders can make individual homes available with solar panels or build a shared solar-power system serving a group of homes.

The new building standard - unanimously approved by the five-member California Energy Commission - would be the first such statewide mandate in the nation.

"This is an undeniably historic decision for the state and the US California has always been our nation's biggest solar champion, and its mass adoption of solar has generated huge economic and environmental benefits, including bringing tens of billions of dollars of investment into the state", said Abigail Ross Hopper, president and CEO of the Solar Energy Industries Association.

"You can bet every other of the 49 states will be watching closely to see what happens", he said.

The California Energy Commission estimates that the new standards will add about $40 to an average monthly payment based on a 30-year mortgage.

Turkey's solar power production saw a yearly increase of 175 percent to 2.8 million megawatt-hours in 2017. They would still have to draw some of their electricity from the power grid.

In the long run, far-sighted local and state leaders, such as Jerry Brown, will have a much larger impact on the direction of climate and energy policy- both here at home and around the world- than will President Trump, whose rhetoric about the revival of the coal industry is just that and nothing more.

But Republican legislative leaders argue Californians can not afford to pay any more for housing in what is already an extremely expensive market.

"Farmers are dealing with and living in nature regularly, and so they are thinking long-term money wise, but they are also thinking long-term for the environment its kind of a flawless balance for farmers to think solar", Beck said.

In accordance with Turkish EMRA's revised legislation in January, Turkish citizens are allowed to install solar panels with a maximum capacity of 10 kilowatts with less red-tape than previously.
