The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) offers an incentive for their customers to construct green buildings. Through this policy, new construction or retrofit projects submitted to the LADWP, which meet the standards of LEED Silver will be labeled as a “Green Building” on LADWP applications. This designation will allow the project to receive priority treatment through the construction and water/power connection process. The LADWP will also help the project owner understand how they can take advantage of their other incentive programs and further enhance the energy efficiency of their building. Interested developers and builders can contact the LADWP Energy Efficiency team at (213) 367-4134 or log on to to learn how a project can be fast tracked.
