Just days after California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger spoke at the 2008 Solar Power International conference in San Diego, Schwarzenegger appeared at the Staples Center to commemorate the venue’s new 1,727-panel rooftop solar array.  Despite having some less-than-green habits in his personal life, Gov. Schwarzenegger has been a vocal supporter of solar energy, enthusiastically championing the industry at every opportunity.

Gov. Schwarzenegger smiled and posed with the Staples center general manager and the CEOs of AEG and Solar Power Inc., the two companies who worked together to install the photovoltaic panels. The rooftop array will provide environmental offsets for the next 25 years, including the elimination of 10,000 tons of CO2.

As the last panel was put in place, Gov. Schwarzenegger said, “Everyone these days talks about some states that are red, other states that are blue, we here in California are more interested in building a green state. That is what this is all about here today. The outcome of the Celtics and Lakers would have been different if we had these solar panels two years ago!”
