SAN FRANCISCO, CA. The Los Angeles Department of Water & Power (LADWP) has more than doubled electric generation capacity from its Solar Incentive Program since employing a streamlined program management solution by Black & Veatch and Clean Power Research one year ago.
"Over the past year, the streamlined program management solution by Black & Veatch and Clean Power Research has enabled our client to reduce application review time by approximately 65 percent and double their rate of payments."
“Since 2009, LADWP has seen a 400 percent increase in solar incentive program applications,” said Kurt Westermann, Senior Vice President in Black & Veatch’s global energy business. “Over the past year, the streamlined program management solution by Black & Veatch and Clean Power Research has enabled our client to reduce application review time by approximately 65 percent and double their rate of payments.”
Black & Veatch has been working with LADWP since 2011 to implement IT solutions and streamlined processes for its solar incentive program. A key feature of the streamlined solution was the integration of PowerClerk, an automated incentive processing Web service from Clean Power Research.
“Solar incentive programs are gaining in popularity among utilities nationwide,” said Westermann. “However, growing demand for rooftop solar magnifies key challenges. To manage the growing demand for rooftop solar, a program management solution is needed to efficiently process applications, verify the use of pre-approved major equipment, and confirm system inspections have been performed. The entire process helps utilities efficiently manage the growing demand for connecting new solar systems safely and reliably.”
