Saving Money, Saving Families, Saving the Environment
At a time when Los Angeles families are caught between a jobs crisis and rising energy costs, we need the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) to be a leader by creating career-path jobs that can help save people money on their bills while reducing our reliance on coal.
In the years to come, an expanded city-wide energy efficiency program in Los Angeles would save LADWP customers money and also help the environment and create good, middle-class jobs. Under RePower LA’s plan, the LADWP would expand its ability to recruit and train workers to perform the highly skilled work needed when upgrading homes and businesses to be more energy efficient.
As the largest municipality-owned utility in the country, LADWP can become a model for an effective large scale energy efficiency program. RePower LA proposes building LADWP’s capacity to provide customer service and marketing and outreach, helping the LADWP to transform itself into a 21st century utility focused on energy planning.
