Solar power generation is rising in California, breaking records twice in the past week, the Sacramento Business Journal reports.

On Friday, the state hit an all-time high output of 2,071 megawatts of electrical generation 12:59 p.m. That record was broken again at 12:53 p.m. on Monday, when output reached 2,104 megawatts.

It was just last September that California for the first time peaked at 1,000 megawatts.
