ENERGY EFFICIENCY THIS SUMMER
Although Azusa Light & Water (ALW) does not rely on or obtain natural gas from the Aliso Canyon natural gas storage facility to generate electricity, ALW may be affected due to its interconnection with the local (LA Basin) electric grid. Aliso Canyon gas storage facility is crucial for operation of the in-basin power plants, which not only supply energy but are also necessary for local grid stability. In that sense all electric utilities serving load in the greater LA basin may be affected by inadequate in-basin power generation that may be potentially induced by gas supply shortage. If such gas supply caused shortage of power, limited shortage were to occur among all utilities sharing whatever power is available in “real time.”
Azusa Light & Water will strive to provide information to the public before a power outage but everyone is urged to prepare now!
