ROSEMEAD, Calif. — Southern California Edison (SCE) has begun installing solar panels at the first of approximately 150 Southern California commercial rooftops that eventually will make up SCE’s two-square-mile solar generation project — the largest solar panel installation in the world, according to the energy company.

During the next 45 days, SCE will attach 33,000 solar panels to a 600,000-square-foot commercial roof in Fontana, Calif., leased from ProLogis. The installation will be capable of generating two million watts of power, enough electricity to supply approximately 1,300 average Southern California households. Southern California Edison is the largest electric utility in California, serving a population of more than 13 million via 4.8 million customer accounts in Central, Coastal and Southern California.
