Great ! Congrats to CA, and many more roofs covered with solar -- and energy independence on your own roof to those who like!

Would be excellent to find that there is this much solar energy created in another state and in CA again in 2013. (Since some other energy sources are backed 6% more than Solar -- then Solar energy is doing extreemly well with very little to get started -- did I get that right.)

> solar supplied over five percent of that state’s electricity demand.
for maybe one minute, and --probably-- 0 % for several hours

(e.g. on that day, in CA) total electricity consumption(+waste) = ? how much of that was 'solar' ?

" It's always the same: it's not 'the economy' and not the market being ecologized, but 'ecology' being merchandized. Nothing gained. Quite the contrary. 'Economy' basking in their 'ecological awareness'. [my transl.]
[Orig.:] Es ist immer dasselbe: Nicht die Wirtschaft und nicht der Markt werden ökologisiert, sondern die Ökologie wird vermarktet. Gewonnen ist nichts. Im Ggenteil. Die Wirtschaft sonnt sich in ihrem Umweltbewusstsein."
