Solar Power: From the Roof to the Ground

Hosted by  • 

A state law, passed in 1978, says virtually nothing can stop the installation of solar power if there's no threat to health or safety. Now the Lakeview Terrace neighborhood in the San Fernando Valley is one of at least two dozen places where ground-based solar projects are planned. They are different from what was envisioned when the law was passed. LA City Councilman Felipe Fuentes says local government should have more power.
