All participating FiT systems are located within the LADWP’s service territory and interconnected to the LADWP electrical distribution system. The FiT program encourages renewable energy development within the Los Angeles Basin to help meet the 33% Renewable Portfolio Standard mandate by 2020.
The 100 MW FiT Program is the successor to the LADWP’s 10 MW FiT Demonstration Program which was approved by the Board on April 17, 2012 and launched on May 17, 2012. The Demonstration Program helped gauge market pricing and test the initial program’s structure. It restricted projects to solar energy systems between 30 kW to 999 kW. Projects under the Demonstration Program were selected under a bid pricing mechanism.
