The LADWP CLIP Program (Commercial Lighting Incentive Program) was created to help and encourage commercial property owners to upgrade their lighting systems to more energy efficient alternatives. CLIP is a powerful local incentive that will cover a significant portion of an LED lighting retrofit to your building making it possible to gain the advantages of an updated lighting system such as 50% reduction in electricity needs. This short guide will take you through what you need to know about the LADWP CLIP Program so that you can determine if your property will qualify.
Part 1: What is the CLIP Program?
CLIP is an incentive program that rewards property owners for the installation of newly purchased and installed energy efficient lighting systems. The amount you receive from LADWP is based on the amount of energy that you save through your lighting updates. These incentives will range from $.08 to $.24 per kilowatt-hour of annualized savings and can cover up to 100% of your project’s cost.
