The LADWP 10 MW Solar Feed-in Tariff (FiT) Demonstration Program is accepting applications until 2 p.m. on Friday, June 29, 2012.
In April of this year LADWP’s Board of Water and Power Commissioners approved a 10MW FiT Demonstration Program to encourage renewable energy development within the Los Angeles Basin and to help meet the 33% Renewable Portfolio Standard Mandate by 2020. The FiT Program will allow LADWP to partner with program participants to purchase, through a standard power purchase contract, electricity generated from a participants’ renewable energy plant. These plants will be located within the LADWP service territory and connected to the LADWP electrical distribution system.
LADWP hosted training workshops during the month of April 2012 to educate the public on the FiT participation process. Details from this workshop are available online (PDF).
