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.
The LABC is a proud member of the Green Together Collaborative, a partnership designed to harness rooftop solar and other initiatives to strengthen the local economy and reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the Pacoima-Sun Valley area.
