More Solar Hot Water Incentives For Californians
In October of 2011, the California Public Utility Commission approved the California Solar Initiative Thermal Low-Income Program, which allocated $25M to promote solar hot water systems on select single-family and multifamily residences in California. Those rebates are now up and running, and ready to be allocated to households that make the switch from natural gas to solar thermal.

Romney’s platform is called "Believe in America: Mitt Romney’s Plan for Jobs and Economic Growth" and it contains the candidate's energy policy which “will make every effort to safeguard the environment, but be mindful at every step of also protecting the jobs of American workers. This will require putting conservative principles into action.” Complete details on Romeny’s energy plan are here.

Agua Caliente, in Yuma County, Arizona, is now the largest operational PV plant in North America with 100 megawatts on-line of the 290-megawatt solar project. Construction is still in progress and expected to be completed in 2014. The plant is owned by NRG Energy, but First Solar will build, operate and maintain the site.
