Embracing the Green Economy

Sustainability is good business – and the LABC is leading the way.

In California…

500,000+ people work in clean energy

L.A. has more installed solar power than any other city in U.S.

California committed to 100% clean energy by 2045

One of the LABC’s core policy positions is that environmental stewardship and economic growth go hand-in-hand.

We are proud that L.A. is leading the country in solar power, green jobs, and water conservation — with a thriving economy and cleaner environment to show for it.

The entire state of California stands on the front lines in the fight against climate change, with the most aggressive environmental laws in the country. We also continue to outpace the nation in terms of economic growth. In fact, the entire West Coast GDP grew 32% between 2010 and 2018 while California and its coastal neighbors pursued ambitious climate goals and stricter regulation.

At the LABC, we understand strong environmental policies create sustainable, quality jobs that Californians can count on.

Local Solar Initiatives

The LABC is dedicated to helping model, scale, and accelerate the use of renewable energy sources in order to create a cleaner and more reliable energy network for Los Angeles.

Feed-in Tariff (FiT)

The LABC is a long-time champion of the FiT program, which allows individuals to sell energy generated from their rooftop solar back to the grid- a guaranteed revenue stream! Learn more about LABC’s FiT Program.

Net Metering (NEM)

NEM systems connect rooftop solar to the grid, creating flexibility for the solar rooftop owner. If extra energy is needed, the grid will supply it. If energy is abundant, it can be exported to the grid and offset the owner’s electric bill.

Solar Plus Storage

Solar plus storage saves energy produced by rooftop solar panels for later use. Energy storage plays an important role in creating a more flexible and reliable grid system.
