LADWP Customers Reminded to Conserve Energy Where Possible Today
|LOS ANGELES — As Los Angeles braces for another hot day, the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power reminds customers to conserve energy use where possible today, while staying safe.
The energy demand reached 4763 megawatts Sunday and is expected to match, and potentially exceed, that level today with highs exceeding 100 degrees for the third straight day in the San Fernando Valley. Any time energy demand approaches this level, it is wise to implement active conservation to prevent overtaxing the electrical infrastructure that serves Los Angeles day in and day out. Conservation is recommended only where doing so does not jeopardize anyone’s health or safety.
