Recently, history was made in the state of California and it’s going to result in a lot of people saving money, energy and our planet. On May 9, the Golden State voted to become the first state in the union to require new homes to install solar panels. The move was approved unanimously by the California Energy Commission, according to the New York Times. The requirement takes affect in 2020. At GreenLeaf Solar, Long Island’s leading solar company, we know that installing solar panels can change your life in many ways and we can’t wait to see how the solar revolution transforms California.
