A recent discovery by Herman Trabish of Greentech Media, in regard to California's power grid, is that 97% of new electricity to be added in the second half of this year will come from solar power projects.
According to a 2012 report on market issues and performance (known as the ISO report), 1,633 megawatts of capacity are expected to be added to the grid in the second half of 2013, and 1,581 of those will come from solar power projects. 52 megawatts will come from biomass projects.“
By the end of the first half of the year, the ISO will have added 3,391 megawatts of nameplate capacity, of which 2,296 megawatts will be natural gas, 565 megawatts will be wind and 530 megawatts will be solar,” said Trabish.
