Pasadena Water & Power

Pasadena Water & Power, a community-owned utility since 1906, is committed to helping Pasadena reach the environmental goals set forth in the U.S. Mayors Climate Protection Agreement and the U. N. Urban Environmental Accords, endorsed by our city in November 2006. Through a variety of incentive programs and public outreach campaigns, PWP is driving Pasadena to reduce its summer peak electric load by 10 percent by 2012 and cut annual energy consumption levels by 1.33 percent each year through 2016. PWP offers a variety of incentive programs to encourage its customers to adopt efficient appliances and technology. Incentives are offered on solar installations, emerging technology, water-saving devices, energy efficiency retrofits, Energy Star appliances, pool pumps, green building standards and more. In August of 2008, PWP launched its "Power of 10 Challenge" to encourage all households in Pasadena to switch to 10 CFLs. Our city would cut 10,000 tons of carbon emissions every year.
