Los Angeles Department of Water and Power Ponders Solar Incentives


The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP), the largest municipal utility in the U.S., is reportedly ready to reintroduce a solar incentive program (SIP) it abruptly dropped in April,ostensibly to address issues like lack of funding, a backlog of morethan 500 applications, some safety concerns, and possiblemisrepresentations by solar installers.

The suspension, effective April 8th, was programmed to run a minimum of 90 days, oruntil issues were resolved, allowing the municipal utility to review its protocols and revise the program as, and if, needed. Previously, inNovember of 2010, the agency reduced its rebates in what it described as an effort to sustain the program’s financial base.
