On April 8, 2015, Mayor Eric Garcetti released L.A.’s first-ever Sustainable City pLAn. The pLAn is a roadmap to achieve back to basics short-term results while setting the path to strengthen and transform L.A., by addressing the environment, economy, and equity together. The pLAn is made up of short term (by 2017) and longer term (by 2025 and 2035) targets in 14 categories that will advance the environment, economy and equity. To reach these targets, the Mayor is calling upon organizations, universities, neighborhood councils, community groups, businesses, and individual Angelenos to commit to “Adopt the pLAn” into action.
The LADWP Board recently adopted the most aggressive energy efficiency target of any utility in California, pledging to reduce energy usage by 15 percent across the city of Los Angeles by 2020. This would have the same carbon emissions impact as removing 440,000 cars from Los Angeles’ roads each year.
The City Energy Project will be integral in developing the future of Los Angeles’ energy policies.
