DWP and Solar: Let the sun shine...

The LA Department of Water and Power took a little bit of a beating with the defeat of Measure B back in March. DWP’s political opponents crowed victory; the utility’s chief, David Nahai, told me immediately that Solar LA would move forward anyway.

And it is.

Now DWP is launching a series of six workshops around the city to get public input about solar energy plans. They're recordin' and facilitatin' and generally takin' note of what people say. But there's no specific action that will come out of it; DWP's board can approve a course of action, regardless. The flyer is long on locations; it's short on specific details about what they'll do with people's input. But you can't know if you don't go.
