Hey @mikeepeck thanks for shedding some light on this! It's an interesting conundrum that is unfolding in many geographies in similar ways. The upside is that at least there are some incentives and momentum towards cleaner distributed energy - tough question though: what is the best way to efficiently structure public funds towards cleaning up the grid?
To play devil's advocate for a minute - perhaps they have intentionally structured the program in such a way that the budget they have available is creating maximal environmental impact with larger generators. I'm sure it is a complex issue with stakeholders having valid perspectives on both sides. Of course, entrenched interests are likely the root cause of the way it is set up currently. Also, I had to search up what LADWP meant because it is not a commonly known acronym for most
