Southern California Activities

CEERT continues our long-time work to reduce Southern California’s dependence on fossil-fueled power and increase its reliance on clean energy resources. In addition to our regulatory advocacy to promote renewable energy and the building of a low-carbon grid for the region, we are particularly focusing on Los Angeles and the Imperial Valley.

Recent Developments:

Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP)

V. John White continues to attend meetings of the Advisory Committee of LADWP’s Strategic Long-Term Plan for 100% Clean Energy, and of the Equity Advisory Committee, which together are guiding the integrated resource plan that will govern LADWP’s procurement and transmission planning for the next 10 years. We are working with LADWP staff on streamlining its transmission buildout, and arranged a meeting between LADWP and a clean energy developer seeking to deploy fuel cells instead of combustion of hydrogen for backup reliability.
