Southern California Edison (SCE) has launched one of the largest solar installations in the U.S. SCE plans to install up to 250 megawatts (MW) of advanced solar photovoltaic (PV) generating technology on 65 million square feet of roofs on Southern California commercial buildings.

"This project will turn two square miles of unused commercial rooftops into advanced solar generating stations. We hope to have the first solar rooftops in service by August. The sunlight power will be available to meet our largest challenge – peak load demands on the hottest days." --John Bryson, CEO, Edison International
