Large-scale Solar Association

The Large-scale Solar Association (LSA) is the lead utility-scale solar advocacy organization in California. LSA’s mission is to advocate for policies that support the deployment of utility-scale solar technologies in California sufficient to meet the state’s unprecedented climate and clean energy targets. LSA members are leaders in the utility-scale solar industry with deep experience in all disciplines necessary to site develop, engineer, construct, finance and operate utility scale solar and battery storage systems. Our companies are principally responsible for developing most of the operational and planned solar and storage capacity in California today.

Since its founding in 2008, LSA continues to be the only trade association in California focused exclusively on advancing the interests of utility-scale solar policies and priorities.

Benefits of Solar

Solar, coupled with energy storage, is the backbone of California’s Zero Carbon Plan, and the technology has advanced to the point where solar is now the leading cost-effective renewable resource, with costs 80% lower today than ten years ago. Solar technology is safe and durable, with panels often warrantied for 30 years or more.
