Los Angeles ranks as the California city with the second-highest amount of solar installations and solar electricity generated, according to a report released Wednesday.

The report by the Environment California Research and Policy Center found that L.A. ranks behind San Diego in terms of the number of solar installations on residential, commercial and government buildings, with more than 4,000 projects installed.

L.A. is also second to San Diego in the total amount of solar electricity generated, with 36 megawatts, the report said.
Michelle Kinman, a coauthor of the project, said the reporting shows L.A. is "closing in" on San Diego.
