Large-Scale Warehouse Rooftop Solar Project Launches in CA

A large rooftop solar panel system has been installed in the Northeast San Fernando Valley; the 1.5-megawatt solar array was constructed on top of a warehouse in Panorama City, California.

The solar array, which will generate enough renewable energy to power 200 homes, is part of the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power’s (LADWP) Feed-in Tariff (FiT) solar program.

The program enables building owners to create solar power plants on their rooftops and sell the power generated to LADWP for distribution on the city’s power grid.

“We continue to work with urgency to build a greener Los Angeles and reach our goal of a 100% renewable grid by 2035,” said Los Angeles Mayor Karen Bass in a statement. “Projects like these reduce our carbon footprint and strengthen the local economy in the Northeast San Fernando Valley. We thank the Los Angeles Business Council and our valley regional partners for making this project a reality.”

In 2013, LADWP launched the nation’s largest urban rooftop FiT program, helping business owners turn their rooftops into assets. In addition to lowering GHG emissions, the FiT program is credited with encouraging private investment in clean solar power in L.A. County.

The new solar project was developed by Valta Energy, together with building owner Rexford Industrial.
