|« AB 811 - Report from Stakeholders' Meeting||AB 811 Stakeholder Meeting - Monday 12/7 @ 2:00 p.m. »|
Yesterday we reported on the Stakeholder’s meeting that is being held next Monday, December 7, at the MTA HQ building. This is an important update meeting on the County’s progress toward implementing an AB 811 program for LA County and its member cities that will greatly facilitate funding for solar projects.
Today we are reporting on the Cities that we have been able to identify as potentially attending the meeting. Is your City on the list? Find out after the jump.
Here is the list of Cities that we have been able to identify so far (we will update this list if we learn of more participants):
That is it! Pretty pathetic – there are 88 incorporated cities in LA County - the above list accounts for 12 of them. (There are also two Government Associations listed, the San Gabriel Valley Council of Governments and the South Bay Cities COG.)
Why does this matter? As we understand the program, if your city does not adopt a resolution of participation, YOU, as a potential solar customer, will not be eligible to participate in the program - and thereby cutoff from a low-cost source of solar financing.
Frankly, there is no excuse for any city not to participate. So contact your city manager and find out why your city is not represented. Better yet, insist that they have someone attend this meeting and get with the program!
