Fresno has been lauded as the U.S. city with the second-highest solar power generating capacity per person, second only to Honolulu, Hawaii.
The recognition of the city by Environment California Research & Policy Center in its April 2018 “Shining Cities 2018” report was celebrated Wednesday by Fresno City Council President Esmeralda Soria in a news conference at Central High School-East. The report highlighted major cities across the country that have significant development of photovoltaic solar panels to generate electricity for homes and businesses and are connected to the statewide power grid.
