San Luis Obispo's California Polytechnic University is installing a 4.5 megawatt solar farm. The farm is being constructed on 18 acres of agricultural land just northwest of the Cal Poly campus. Upon completion, the farm will generate nearly 25 percent of the university's total energy needs.

The Island of Kaua'i is making a shift to solar for its residential power source, and it's using a San Luis Obispo based company to do it. 

Work began in late June on a 12 megawatt (MW) system, which when finished next year should provide about five percent of the island's needs. It's the largest project to date for REC Solar.
