Department Asks Customers to Conserve Power
|LOS ANGELES — The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) asks all residents to reduce their energy usage wherever possible today, as long as doing so does not compromise their or their family members’ health or safety.
This morning LADWP minimized power imports on a transmission line that passes through the Leona Valley and began generating power at in-basin power plants to deliver energy to the City.
At this time, the LADWP Power System is functioning normally and no fire-related outages are reported.
LADWP asks the public to help reduce all unnecessary load demand on our City’s power system and help the Department meet citywide energy needs until the threat posed by the Crown Fire diminishes.
The public and members of the media are encouraged to check the Department’s news site and Twitter page, @LADWP, for updates.
