The objectives set by SB1 for the CSI are clear:
1. Install 3,000 megawatts of distributed solar PV capacity in California by the end of 2016
2. Establish a self-sufficient solar industry in which solar energy systems are a viable mainstream option in 10 years
3. Place solar energy systems on 50 percent of new homes in 13 years
