The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power has urged business and residential customers to conserve energy during this period of high temperatures and humidity. Record-breaking demand on the city's electrical system has resulted in sporadic outages throughout the area. While the LADWP has ample energy supplies, air conditioners running for long periods of time are putting a heavy load on local distribution systems.
Please take steps to conserve energy whenever possible. The LADWP offers these simple ideas:
* Turn off desk, overhead, and meeting room lights when they are not needed.
* Turn off computer equipment when you leave the office.
* Try to avoid operating equipment during peak hours of the day.
Thank you all for your assistance.
Senior Vice President, Operations
