And it’s not just one-off days that are seeing substantial growth in renewable energy on California’s grid. During May 2014, solar made up 6 percent of Cal ISO’s total electric load for the month, three times the amount from one year earlier. During peak hours, solar was providing about 14 percent of total power in May of this year, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA). California added 2145 MW of utility-scale solar in 2013. California is not the only state setting records with renewables. Texas rec...
