The Solar Incentive Program (SIP) offers incentives to offset the cost of installing a solar rooftop system on your home. LADWP provides a one-time payment to customers who purchase or lease solar rooftop systems that generate power for their home or business while still being connected to the city’s power grid. This way, when their system does not generate power (at night, for example) their electricity will be supplied directly by the power grid. When their system generates more power than they draw from the grid, their meter runs backward and the excess energy is reflected as a credit on their bill.
“Cities are the platform for change in our world today. The Cool Block links the challenges facing our planet to the intimate, personal, social scale of the city block. This program starts and ends with the premise and promise—that the individual, household, and neighbors are the way forward in the face of seemingly insoluble global problems.”
