Comprehensive Affordable Multifamily Retrofits Program

The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power’s Comprehensive Affordable Multifamily Retrofits (CAMR) program assists L.A.’s low income, multifamily property owners. CAMR will offer multifamily property owners no-cost property assessments to identify efficiency opportunities to help owners and their residents to save energy and reduce costs. In addition, qualified property owners will receive aid with work scope development and the contractor procurement process.

Property owners can receive financial incentives for reducing greenhouse gas emissions in both common areas and inside tenants’ units.

Eligibility Requirements

Participating properties must:

  • Consist of five (5) or more units
  • Meet affordability requirement of at least 66% of households at or below 80% of Area Median Income and be located in a Disadvantaged Community (DAC)
  • Properties located outside of a DAC may be eligible to participate with proof of rent regulatory agreement or provision of public assistance program documentation
  • Identify energy improvements that equate to at least 5% in electrical energy savings

In addition, project contractors must meet prevailing wage, skilled and trained workforce, and licensing requirements, as applicable.

Property owners who are able to achieve more than 5% in energy savings may also be eligible to receive incentives for the installation of solar photovoltaic systems.

CAMR Solar Pilot Program

To expand solar benefits to multifamily property owners and tenants, active CAMR participants may be eligible for additional incentives for the installation of photovoltaic systems through participation in the Virtual Net Energy Metering (VNEM) pilot program.

Through the VNEM program, property owners can install solar photovoltaic systems at multifamily sites and sell the solar energy generated to LADWP. A minimum of 40% of the sales proceeds must be distributed among onsite tenants, allowing multifamily tenants to benefit first-hand from the savings solar power provides.


Solar Pilot Program Eligibility Requirements

Participating properties must:

  • Meet CAMR program requirements, actively implement energy-efficiency measures through the CAMR program, and receive CAMR program incentives
  • Meet and complete VNEM requirements (more information and guidelines at
