The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) says it will begin accepting applications for the first 20 MW of its new solar feed-in-tariff (FIT) program on Feb. 1. The application period will remain open through June 28 at 2:00 p.m.

Applications for solar projects from 30 kW to 3 MW will be accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis. During the first five business days of the application period, all submitted applications will be prioritized on the reservation list by lottery. Applications received after the first five business days will be dated and time-stamped.

Applications will be confirmed based on the priority of the reservation list for up to 20 MW. LADWP will enter into a standard 20-year contract for each project and purchase the solar power at a set price, starting at $0.17/kWh for the first 20 MW.

Earlier this month, the utility's board of commissioners approved the 100 MW program as the first component of an eventual 150 MW offering. A proposal for the additional 50 MW FIT program will be discussed with the board in March.
