The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) says it has closed the application process for its 10 MW solar feed-in-tariff demonstration program.

By the end of the year, LADWP will move forward with approval and implementation of the full FIT program, which will offer 150 MW worth of renewable energy. The results of the demonstration program and bid evaluation will provide information needed on pricing mechanisms and the rate at which the rest of the 150 MW will be deployed.

LADWP staff has begun reviewing 26 applications submitted during a month-and-a-half-long bidding period and will narrow the field to a short list of proposed projects in August. The short-listed projects will undergo interconnection studies in August through September, with final contracts offered and signed in October and November.

Projects will be selected based on the proposer's price and the project feasibility. Upon completion, successful projects will receive their proposed price per kilowatt-hour, fixed for up to 20 years.
