The campus is home to LACI, a cleantech incubator founded in 2011 as a cluster-driven economic development initiative supported by the City of Los Angeles, LADWP and Community Redevelopment Agency of Los Angeles. In just over four years LACI has become one of theleading cleantech incubators in the world.  


The morning ribbon cutting program will feature remarks from Mayor Eric Garcetti, Members of the LA City Council, LADWP Leadership,philanthropist Morton La Kretz and notable local innovators.
