However, according to the research of GTM, the peak generation could even be 50% higher.
The previous records were from July 13th and June 7 when 6.16 gigawatts were produced. The rapid increase and the fast record setting shows that California is growing in their solar energy production quite rapidly.
This has to do with the state’s new renewable energy goals. The governor of California, Jerry Brown, called for the state to reach at least 50% of electricity from renewables by 2030. The fast record setting is showing that this goal may be possible. The results so far are very encouraging.
