By 2030, LADWP can build a fleet of roughly 150,000 homes and 5,000 apartment buildings with home solar and battery storage.
The report further recommends steps can be taken to scale
“Mayor Garcetti and LADWP have shown bold climate leadership in moving beyond gas-fired power plants towards 100% clean energy. Angelenos are demanding clean energy, and the home solar and batteries they adopt in coming years can replace retiring gas plants while maintaining reliable electricity across Los Angeles,” said
In addition to replacing the capacity needs from a gas plant, Sunrun’s Brightbox home solar and battery service offers additional benefits unique to local resources, as compared to the old centralized model. Brightbox can power homes day and night with clean energy and provide backup power in the event of a grid outage. Local clean energy like home solar and batteries can help displace the need for costly transmission infrastructure while also supporting the increased adoption of electric vehicles. Through streamlined permitting and interconnection of systems, home solar and batteries can come online and provide local clean energy to consumers and the electricity grid even faster and at a lower cost.
