15 California State University campuses, including five from the LA region, will receive solar power generated energy in a private-public partnership with SunEdison who will install panels on rooftops, parking canopies and other ground-mounted displays at campuses. This initiative will increase the university system's use of alternative energy from 20% to 25% (small steps, small steps), the LA Times says. Locally, the Los Angeles, Fullerton, Pomona, Channel Islands and San Bernardino campuses wil be included in the program.
