The Los Angeles Department of Water & Power may eliminate its green power program. The ratepayer subsidy got caught up in the scandal involving alleged overbilling by the muni?s former PR firm, Fleishman-Hilliard. The green power program, under which customers pay an average $3 monthly premium, generated loads of favorable publicity but has not produced as advertised. Enrollment has dropped significantly. According to department spokesperson Randy Howard, the two-thirds drop in participants to about 30,000 customers is attributable to excluding LADWP?s low-income ratepayers from the tally. The <i>Los Angeles Daily News<\/i> reported that much of the money dedicated to the program was spent on parties and publicity events. Howard said that LADWP is deciding how it will meet the state renewables portfolio standard, which requires 20 percent renewable power by 2017. Internal discussions are focusing on whether to meet the RPS goals to the exclusion of the green power program.
