Sonoma Clean Power broke ground Thursday on its first project to generate renewable energy in its own backyard to add to the green power it relies on from producers across the West.
The nonprofit public electricity provider has partnered with Rocklin-based Coldwell Solar to start installing solar panels in pasture land south of Petaluma that will eventually provide 2 megawatts of power a year, providing electricity for about 600 homes annually.
