CLEAN LA Solar is a groundbreaking new energy program that supplies zero-carbon, renewable energy for Los Angeles while creating jobs and fueling private investment in our city. Supported by the Los Angeles Business Council and our CLEAN LA Coalition, the program takes advantage of the vast, underutilized rooftop space in all of L.A.’s neighborhoods, including disadvantaged areas that had been left out of our growing green economy. Launched in 2013, CLEAN LA Solar will be the largest urban rooftop solar program in the United States – and is already being hailed as a model for the nation. CLEAN LA Solar allows businesses and commercial property-owners to generate energy for the city’s power grid through rooftop solar panels, and sell the power to the Department of Water and Power (DWP). This policy is known as a feed-in-tariff (FiT), and is one of the best mechanisms to promote clean, solar energy.
