In the last few months there have been a few instances of individuals approaching small business customers with LADWP’s CLEO application, asking for cash up front to perform lighting retrofit work, and then never returning to perform the installations that were promised.
Please urge community members to note that LADWP does not charge for energy efficiency rebates or direct installation of efficiency upgrades.
FYI – The Korean community seemed to have been targeted for these scams early on. In response, ads were placed on Korean-language radio to raise awareness. Any additional efforts you can make to reach out to small businesses in the Korean community would be helpful.
