The Philippines is a country of more than 100 million people. Its history and its proximity to China have made it an important U.S. ally, but it's had its share of challenges.
Arizona second in solar installations
A new report shows Arizona is ranked second nationwide in the capacity of its solar installations. From Phoenix, KJZZ’s Nick Blumberg has more.
The report comes from the Solar Energy Industries Association, and looks at the third quarter of 2012.
During that time, the SEIA says Arizona had 192 megawatts of solar energy installed -- second only to California. Immediately following Arizona on the list are New Jersey, Massachusetts and Nevada.
Arizona Corporation Commission Chairman Gary Pierce says policies adopted by the commission over the past couple years have positioned Arizona to get more solar power at lower costs.
