USC-LADWP will provide a quarter of USC’s electricity with power from a solar farm in Mojave and will contribute to new solar programs.

USC will obtain 25% of its electricity from solar-generated power and contribute to new solar programs that expand opportunities for disadvantaged communities to access affordable clean energy — all under a new agreement with the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power.

ear agreement approved by the L.A. City Council on Wednesday will help USC meet its goals in reducing carbon-based energy consumption.
