Academic Journal
The article cites key findings from the "Bay Area Solar Installation Report" released by the NorCal Solar Energy Association in California in 2007. The report, which describes the amount and number of installed grid-tied solar photovoltaic (PV) systems in various communities and Bay Area counties in California, provides data that can be used in comparing PV installation progress with the targets of the California Solar Initiative and in tracking cost trends and local prices pertaining to PV installations in the state.
