Our Clean Energy Future Is Now

L.A.’s clean energy future is guided by our Power Strategic Long-Term Resource Plan (SLTRP), a roadmap for providing reliable and sustainable electricity to our customers, while also transitioning to a 100% carbon-free power supply by 2035. Developing a robust and actionable power plan is essential to achieving a clean energy future for Los Angeles, but we can't do it alone. We need your participation.

Join us for virtual community meetings on August 30, September 1 and September 7 at 6 p.m. to learn more about the paths under consideration for reaching 100% carbon-free energy for L.A. and provide input on the 2022 Power SLTRP. Register today!

Cool LA | Beat the Heat &

Stay Safe

With the hottest month upon us, we want you to stay safe and comfortable and have solutions to help you stay cool!

The new 'Cool LA' initiative addresses extreme heat impacts faced by homeowners and renters and will offer options for purchasing or replacing various types of cooling units; and, will provide eligible customers with an option to enroll in "Level Pay" to smooth out high bills through payment plans spread out across the year.

An array of existing programs that address short-term and long-term climate change-induced extreme heat would be included in the ‘Cool LA’ initiative.

Recycled Water Fill Stations Are Now Open!

In partnership with Los Angeles Sanitation & Environment (LASAN), we announced the re-opening of two free recycled water fill stations where customers can now fill empty water containers with up to 300 gallons of recycled water for irrigation. Since the City moved to two-days-a-week watering, the recycled water stations are part of the City’s effort to help Angelenos continue conservation efforts that helped Los Angeles achieve an all-time low in water use for both June and July!
