California's Glass was Half-Full Last Friday

Jeremy Deaton at Vox has the update on Calfornia's progress on solar electricity generation.

Around midday on Friday, demand reached around 29 Gigawatts (GW), while solar was providing nearly 14 GW of generation — some 9 GW from utility-scale arrays and another 5 GW or so from rooftops and parking lot canopies around the state.
Deaton rightly celebrates the achievement, but then goes on to cover some of the challenges California faces in creating a solar economy.
