With record high heat persisting and demand for electricity breaking all-time records, LADWP urges customers to redouble efforts to conserve energy.
With a record breaking heat wave persisting across Los Angeles, and a statewide Flex Alert issued for Friday, Sept 1st, the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) continues to urge customers to reduce their electricity use as much as possible while staying safe. LADWP customers’ electricity use hit a new all-time peak demand on Thursday, the highest ever recorded in over 100 years, and another record peak demand is forecasted for Friday when temperatures are expected to be even hotter, especially along the coast.
LADWP customers set a new record for peak electricity demand of 6,502 megawatts (MW) at 4:15 p.m. on Thursday, Aug 31st, shattering the previous historic peak demand of 6,396 MW, set on September 16, 2014. On Wednesday, the peak load was 6,160 MW which was the second consecutive day that a new record high for 2017 had been set.
LADWP advises customers to conserve electricity during the afternoons when air conditioners typically are at peak use. By conserving electricity, customers can help prevent power outages that can occur if electrical equipment becomes overloaded. The state Flex Alert and LADWP are calling for voluntary electricity conservation from 1 p.m. to 10 p.m., Friday, Sept 1st, which coincides with peak electricity use.

The Glassell Park Improvement Association (GPIA) and Friends of Walnut Canyon are holding a large community meeting on 7/29/17 at 10am at the Glassell Park Community Center. This meeting will give updates and outline how the proposed development of 32 tract homes in Walnut Canyon will affect hundreds of homeowners and thousands of drivers in the Glassell Park area, particularly along the haul route to the building site.
For more information, please VISIT THIS LINK.
NOTE: the public arts committee will be on recess for the summer. Stay posted some time around October or November for updates, or email email@example.com any time for more info.
Because this program was so popular this spring, Glassell Park Neighborhood Council has once again teamed up with Northeast Trees to bring you free trees to green your parkway (which will be planted for you, but which you are responsible for watering), so all of Glassell Park’s streets can be lovely, shady, tree-lined streets.
If you’ve wanted a tree in your parkway, but just weren’t sure how to make it happen, this is your chance.
If you need any help with your trees after they are planted, there are several community volunteers on hand to help who have been trained by TreePeople, so you will always have someone to ask for help if you need it (just email firstname.lastname@example.org). 🙂

Join us for a celebration of Earth Day and the 10-year anniversary of Rio de Los Angeles State Park (1900 N. San Fernando Rd)!
This event will be a great way for you to learn more about sustainability, as well as connect with sustainability solutions at booths representing community groups, and also celebrate the art of local youth. On stage, we’ll have speakers giving talks on a variety of sustainability topics, and in between these talks will be performances from local youth (dance, instrumental, choral). There will also be an art garden to display local youth artworks (contact us if you’d like to be included).
