Mayor Eric Garcetti’s appointees on the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power Board of Commission unanimously voted to approve power purchase agreements for the Eland Solar and Storage Center, the largest solar and battery energy storage system in the United States. The agreements are subject to City Council approval. Mayor Eric Garcetti said that “The climate crisis has never been more dire, but the solutions have never been clearer or cheaper and Los Angeles is investing in renewable energy and cleaning our air as part of my DWP reform agenda. The Eland Solar and Storage Center will help us keep the lights on without the help of dirty fossil fuels even when the sun isn’t shining and power our progress toward a low-carbon, green-energy future.”

The development of the Eland Solar and Storage Center is a direct result of the zero-carbon vision laid out in Mayor Garcetti’s Green New Deal and is expected to play a key role in helping Los Angeles reach 55% renewable energy by 2025, 80% renewable energy by 2036, and 100% renewable energy by 2045.
