More Californians are going solar at home

The California Public Utilities Commission released a report Tuesday showing that the rate at which people are installing rooftop solar systems is going well through the roof.

Installations jumped almost 50 percent between 2009 and 2010 and that's not just among homeowners with a good deal of money to invest.

The CPUC's program to help housing agencies go solar has been such a hit, there's now a waiting list.
