Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti highlighted the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power’s new energy efficiency goal of 15 percent by 2020. The new goal, adopted by Garcetti’s appointees to the Board of Water and Power, exceeds the 10-year, 10 percent energy efficiency requirements set by California AB 2021.
The 15 percent goal represents a total of 3,596 GWh in energy use reduction.
Nancy Sutley, LADWP’s Chief Sustainability and Economic Development Officer said, “Key to achieving our 15 percent energy efficiency goal is the participation of all of our customer sectors, but most especially the large commercial, industrial and institutional customers.”
LADWP plans to meet the new energy efficiency goal through diverse energy efficiency programs tailored to meet the specific needs and objectives of its customers. Business programs include the Energy Efficiency Technical Assistance Program; the Commercial Lighting Incentive Program; the Food Service Program; the Small Business Direct Install Program; the Retrocommissioning Program administered in coordination with the Southern California Gas Company.
