The volume of solar business could bring more manufacturing companies, and City College of San Francisco and other educational programs could partner with manufacturers to train consultants and installers.
Barry Cinnamon, CEO of Akeena Solar, a Los Gatos PV installer, expressed enthusiasm and support for the plan. "It's really commendable that cities like San Francisco and Berkeley are trying to find ways to do this."
Sandoval hopes to see the program up and running within a year, and said, "If no one accuses me of conflict of interest, I'll be among the first to sign up."
