Riverside homeowners, businesses and the city have collectively installed enough solar panels to generate 4 megawatts of electricity. Both private and public solar projects currently total more than 320.
The amount of power currently produced from solar is enough to provide electricity to 2,600 homes.
During the past year, Riverside has doubled its production of solar power, according to Riverside Public Utilities. The city-owned power company has offered substantial rebates to residential solar projects since 2003, rebates for commercial projects started in 2008.
There are even solar panels on the top of Riverside City Hall.
