California’s two most recent former governors will visit Clovis on Thursday to celebrate a milestone in solar panel installation.

Listen to this article:

Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jerry Brown will appear at an event hosted by a coalition of solar power advocates to celebrate the one millionth solar roof installation since the passage of a 2006 bill signed by Schwarzenegger. The assembly takes place at a 1:30 p.m. at the CTE Academy amphitheater at Buchanan High School.

Schwarzenegger Signed Solar Initiative in 2006

Schwarzenegger signed SB 1, known as the Million Solar Roofs initiative in 2006, authored by former state Sen. Kevin Murray. The program incentivized public utility companies, and home builders to use solar.
The state reached the million solar panel milestone in July.

About the CTE Academy
