The article presents information on several issues about solar energy. In California, the 10-year California Solar Initiative (CSI) was launched and it has been allocated $3.2 billion to make solar power cost effective with other forms of electricity supply by 2017. In India, it says that investment in the solar power sector is meagre although it has a potential of about 20 megawatt (MW) per square (sq) kilometer (km). Meanwhile, it states that the country's private and public sector oil companies have planned in extending their refining capacity.
