On January 11, the city of Los Angeles significantly increased its renewable energy potential by adopting a 100 megawatt (MW) Clean Local Energy Accessible Now (CLEAN) Program. Approved by the Los Angeles Department of Water & Power’s Board of Commissioners and endorsed by the Clean Coalition and other environmental groups, the CLEAN LA program will build a strong market for solar power by encouraging solar projects to be installed in underutilized spaces like rooftops and abandoned lots. Moreover, the additional 100 MW of local solar capacity will nearly triple the amount of rooftop solar presently active in Los Angeles through the utility’s Solar Incentive Program.

Building on a successful 10 MW pilot program, the new, expanded CLEAN LA program will offer 20 MW every six months at a fixed price, beginning in February.
