The LADWP ballot measure to forestall municipal solar installations until the LADWP can seize a solar monopoly is expected to fail.
The controversial Measure B reportedly lost by 1,325 votes, still too close to call with 100% certainty.
Both sides claimed victory during the night. Around 11:38pm the Yes on Measure B side e-mailed a press release announcing their victory. However, their narrow lead soon evaporated and the No on Measure B campaign is calling a press conference this morning to announce a call to action for the city to move forward in due haste with municipal solar installations, less the LADWP monopoly.
