Meeting Tonight in Port of Los Angeles

LADWP Continues Public Dialogue to Receive Input
on 2011 Water and Power Rates Process  

LOS ANGELES — The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) will hold a regional community collaboration session on its 2011 Rates Process tonight at the Crowne Plaza Los Angeles Harbor Hotel in San Pedro, beginning at 6:30 p.m.

The sessions are designed to inform customers and other stakeholders about the increased costs and the related customer rate impacts associated with meeting basic business needs for water and power, including legal mandates, reliability investments and other challenges facing LADWP. LADWP will also present several "strategic investments" that Department wants the public to provide input on.

During the sessions, which began June 15 at Van Nuys City Hall, customers are able to ask questions and share their comments and concerns on cost impacts of meeting basic business needs as well as indicate their preferences on strategic investments that are not required, but invest further in key areas. These include water and power reliability, improving our local water supplies and developing more wind, solar, and other renewable energy projects rather than rely on shorter-term market purchases, among others. LADWP also plans to hold a final session on July 20 at its downtown Los Angeles headquarters. This session will provide a summary of the key priorities and concerns expressed by customers during the collaboration sessions.
