The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power plans a large 250 MW solar array in Kern County and 50 MW of solar power within the city. Combined, the utility-scale solar array and the local solar projects will provide enough energy for about 150,000 homes.
Forever 21 becomes the latest business to participate in the Los Angeles feed-in tariff program. The company’s planned 1.5 MW rooftop solar installation will be the largest single-rooftop solar power system in Los Angeles County and the third-largest in California.
A new report finds that LA’s feed-in tariff, also known as CLEAN LA Solar, could go further to take advantage of the abundant sun and rooftop space in the city. Increasing the program size would also benefit disadvantaged communities.
Oregon’s successful feed-in tariff winds down, but not without helping propel the rainy state to #12 position in number of solar PV installs. Programs like these not only support solar but keep power generation and ownership local.

The future looks bright for solar in the U.S. That’s according to a recent UC Berkeley study that claims that by 2050, solar power could supply a third of all electricity demand in the country’s western states.
Britain could see up to 90,000 jobs disappear should the cuts pass, bringing solar installation to a screeching halt.
