It’s not too late to join LADWP's Commercial Lighting Incentive Program (CLIP) Recognized Vendor Program!

How It Works

If you are a lighting contractor working in the Los Angeles area, the LADWP’s CLIP Recognized Vendor Program can help your business succeed.

Program Benefits

  • LADWP will maintain and post a list of CLIP Recognized Vendor Program participants on our website for public viewing.
  • Contractors who have consistently provided accurate information on CLIP program documents may eventually be subject to a reduced percentage of site inspections.
  • LADWP allows its customers to assign incentive payments to certain third parties. A customer may request LADWP pay the rebate for their project directly to a lighting contractor holding Recognized Vendor status. CLIP Payment Assignment Request Form.

How to Apply

There are just three simple steps:

  1. A contractor must participate in a LADWP-sponsored training workshop on the proper completion of the CLIP Program application package. For a list of the training workshop dates and locations, see below.
  2. After completion of a training workshop, a contractor must complete at least one lighting project that receives an incentive payment through LADWP’s CLIP Program.
  3. After steps one and two, a contractor must submit a signed CLIP Recognized Vendor Enrollment Form.
