LADWP allows its customers to net meter their photovoltaic (PV), wind, and hybrid systems with a capacity of not more than one megawatt. LADWP will provide the necessary metering equipment unless an installation requires atypical metering equipment. In these cases the customer must cover the additional metering expenses. The customer must also pay any related interconnection fees.

Excess kilowatt-hours (kWh) generated by the customer's system will be credited toward their future bills. Excess bill credits, however, may not be used to offset taxes, minimum charges, or other charges which are not based on energy. If a bill credit still remains when the customer terminates service, the balance will granted to the utility.
