The Los Angeles Department of Water & Power (LADWP) – the nation’s largest municipal utility – processed 400% more solar incentives in the 2011-2012 fiscal year after implementing a new, more efficient program management solution from Black & Veatch and Clean Power Research.

As a result of the new program, LADWP:

  • Provided incentives for approximately 1,900 solar projects totaling 21.8 MW of generation, up from 8.8 MW the previous year – more than doubling electric generation from its Solar Incentive Program.
  • Reduced application review time by approximately 65%.
  • Doubled their rate of payments.

A key feature of the streamlined solution was the integration of PowerClerk®, a self-service online tool that makes it easy to apply for an incentive, and allows program administrators to efficiently process applications.
