The California Independent System Operator Corp. (California ISO) has reported that solar power generation reached a new all-time high output of 2.071 GW on June 7. The day's peak demand for the state was reported at about 36 GW, with solar power supplying more than 5% of that demand.

"This new record is remarkable considering the amount has more than doubled since last September when solar peaked at 1,000 megawatts," says California ISO President and CEO Steve Berberich. "We are excited by this trend and expect to hit more record peaks on a regular basis."
