Nearly 3,000 total homes in our community now have rooftop solar, making Davis one of the highest per-capita solar production communities in the nation. In order to sever our reliance on greenhouse gas-producing fossil fuels, we need to build a deeper relationship with the sun. In 2010, we set a goal to produce 5 percent of the peak electricity used in Davis — 2.6 megawatts — from local renewable energy sources by 2015. We exceeded that goal by approximately 10 times.
