California-based SolarCity Corporation wants to install solar panels at Coronado and Desert Mountain high schools.

If approved by state regulators, the plan could help expand the use of renewable energy by helping schools, government and other big users to get solar panels without the big up-front costs.

The proposal essentially would let solar-panel makers sell electricity without the oversight of state regulators.

At least one Arizona utility is against the plan.
