Solar hasn’t been available to everyone. The majority of Angelenos, who are renters, have been excluded from the solar market and resulting savings. LADWP historically has lacked renter oriented solar programs. These barriers have resulted in disparities in who has access to solar energy, with Repower LA research showing less affluent areas like Boyle Heights receiving less than 1% of solar panel rebates. Yet a new program, Shared Solar is expected to be approved by the DWP Board on September 25th, will serve renters, create a more resilient grid, less blackouts, and good jobs.
