L.A. launches Feed-In Tariff Solar Program

Los Angeles LA Feed-In Tariff Solar Program coal

Los Angeles has launched its program that pays building owners who install solar panels on their properties for contributing power into the city’s grid, according to a report from the Associated Press. The city connected the first installation, located on an apartment building in North Hollywood, to the grid Wednesday.

According to the report, the program is expected to generate around 150 MW of solar energy for the city and is a step toward transforming the city’s power supply to meet the state mandate of having one-third of the city using renewable energy by 2020.

Los Angeles recently began steps toward removing all coal-fired power from the city’s grid, which city officials expect to accomplish by 2025. Currently, the city receives about 39 percent of its power from coal-fired power plants.
