ANAHEIM, Calif. — California has the largest solar market in the U.S. and has been a longtime champion of solar because of the many economic and environmental benefits, including billions in local investment.

Solar supplies more than 20% of California’s electricity today, but it must play a bigger role if the state is to reach climate and energy goals.

To aid in that effort, new developments are happening in the solar space, such as community solar farms, and technology, to keep solar working when there’s a grid outage.
