Beware of Energy Vampires

October is known for pumpkins and costumes, but it's also National Energy Awareness Month -- the perfect time to be energy efficient and conserve by eliminating phantom energy. Slay “energy vampires” by unplugging cell phone chargers, computers, and other appliances that drain energy when not in use.

We also have energy-saving tools, programs, and tips that can help you take a bite out of your electricity bill. Try our Energy Advisor to assess your home's energy efficiency and follow some simple energy conservation tips to reduce your energy costs. Energy efficiency is key to saving money today and an important part of our work toward achieving a clean energy future for L.A. together.

Essential Work Continues

Power system maintenance is important. We maintain a vast power generation, transmission and distribution system that spans five Western states, and delivers electricity to more than 4 million people in Los Angeles. Recently, our crews washed transmission tower insulators in Santa Clarita to ensure peak optimal performance and system reliability.
