What is Solar Savings?
Shared Solar enables residential customers living in multifamily dwellings (apartments, condominiums, duplexes) to fix a portion of their electric bill against rising utility costs for 10 years, as well as support renewable energy, help create local jobs, help reduce the carbon footprint of LADWP’s generation portfolio and lessen the impact of global warming.
There are no enrollment fees, ongoing costs, maintenance costs, nor the hassles of installing a solar array on your home.
How does the program work?
Program participants subscribe for either the minimum of 50 kWh or the maximum of 100 kWh of energy on a monthly basis.
The 50 or 100 KWh of electricity is supplied by new solar power plants constructed in or near the LA basin and is billed at a fixed Shared Solar Program (SSP) rate.
An added benefit is that if you move, your subscription moves with you as long as your next home is a multifamily unit and within LADWP’s service territory.
Who is Eligible?
The program is open to City of Los Angeles electrical customers with the following qualifications:
- Has a rate schedule of R1A-Standard Residential, R1D-Low-Income, or R1E-Lifeline.
- Has an electric service account in good standing associated with a multifamily dwelling unit.
- Has not participated in LADWP’s Solar Incentive.
