Overview
The Energy Efficiency Campaign, a project of the Los Angeles Alliance for a New Economy, has built a coalition of sixty environmental groups, unions, low-income community groups, civil rights and job training organizations, churches, businesses, and others to advocate for the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power to adopt an ambitious energy efficiency program. The Alliance plays a key role as a liaison to the powerful union representing workers at the utility. Increasing the utility’s energy efficiency capacity by 2 percent a year is a critical component of a larger plan to completely cut the utility’s use of coal by 2020.
