-Winifred Yancy, Director, Power New Business and Electrification, Los Angeles Department of Water and Power
Los Angeles Board of Water and Power Commission President Cynthia McClain-Hill will introduce a board motion tomorrow that, if approved, would direct Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) staff to develop measures to cover the substantial cost of public right-of-way power infrastructure upgrades for 100% affordable and permanent supportive housing developments in Los Angeles, and accelerate the utility’s processes and schedules for identifying an affordable housing developer’s precise power service needs.
Under the LADWP Board’s proposed “Project PowerHouse” motion, developers with pending affordable housing projects – undertaken in accordance with Mayor Bass’ recently issued emergency declaration – would work closely with LADWP staff regarding their 100% affordable housing project’s expected power needs and do so at the beginning of their project’s planning phase rather than near the end of their project’s approval timeline with L.A. City Planning.
