As the nation’s largest municipal utility, more than 4 million residents receive their energy service from the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP). In this publication of Public Utilities Fortnightly (PUF), Guidehouse’s Chris Rogers joined PUF in discussion with Marty Adams, General Manager of LADWP to discuss how the organization is successfully moving forward to a clean energy future.
LADWP has been operating in California for more than 100 years and currently provides over 8,000 megawatts of electric capacity and serves an average of 435 million gallons of water per day.
"In L.A. about 40% of the people are at poverty level. Others may have different preconceived ideas of water and energy issues stemming from experiences in their home countries," Adams shared. "So, we are developing new programs and engaging and doing a lot of outreach in a wide variety of languages. So far, the results have been positive."
This article is part of a series of interviews with Western states utility leaders that Guidehouse is conducting with PUF.
