“The LADWP has a strong record of success in implementing effective energy efficiency and conservation programs. This award is recognition of that fact and will allow us to expand our programs and extend our reach to more customers,” said Lorraine Paskett, Sr. Assistant General Manager for Sustainability and External Relations.

The Strategy sets forth the City’s energy efficiency policies and programs and guides allocation of the funding. Fourteen program areas are identified in the Strategy and are earmarked to receive funding to further the City’s energy efficiency and conservation goals.
The LADWP will serve as lead on six of the program areas relating to incentives, financing and outreach, in addition to aiding in the development of the Accountability and Transparency program, as listed below:
