Southern California Edison (SCE). Rosemead, Calif., awarded 36 contracts to independent power producers for a total of nearly 60MW s from photovoltaic solar panels to be installed on 31 unused rooftops and five ground-mount sites in SCE's service territory. When complete, the solar panels will cover an area totaling 4 square miles on about 250 otherwise unused warehouse roofs. The total power production will rival a utility-scale power plant, enough electricity to serve 325,000 average homes. Details
