Attention eco-conscious shoppers: Two Los Angeles malls will soon be outfitted with rooftop solar panels. They're going up on the tops of two Westfield properties, in Topanga and Fashion Square (Sherman Oaks), reports CBS2. The panels are expected to churn our over 2.4 million kilowatts, say mall chain Westfield officials. The price tag for this solar spree is $6.6 million; it's also Westfield's biggest solar endeavor.
