The Pacific Palisades community has experienced growing energy usage, which may require the Los Angeles Department of Water & Power (LADWP) to construct an additional power station and transmission lines into the neighborhood in order to keep up with peak daytime energy demand.

Help avoid the need for a new power station.

Sign the petition for 100% clean, renewable power in Pacific Palisades.

POWER STATION & TRANSMISSION LINES

Construction of the proposed power station is likely to result in significant traffic disruptions in the neighborhood, impact on property values, possible health risks from high voltage electromagnetic frequency (EMF), increased risk of explosions and fire -- and a rise in carbon emissions contributing to greenhouse gas pollution and climate change.


MARQUEZ CHARTER ELEMENTARY SCHOOL

A proposed installation site for the new power station is immediately adjacent to Marquez Charter Elementary School. Parent, teachers, administrators and Los Angeles Unified School District officials are concerned about children's health and safety and are opposed to installing a high voltage power station next to the school.


100% CLEAN POWER PETITION

Communities throughout Los Angeles County and around the world are avoiding these consequences of growing energy usage by establishing renewable energy and conservations goals leading to use of 100% clean, renewable energy.

Sign the petition for 100% clean power in Pacific Palisades.

Encourage the Pacific Palisades community to adopt a goal of 100% clean power by 2018. This is a national goal established by former Vice President Al Gore in 2008. Since then Los Angeles neighborhood councils in Mar Vista, Venice and Silver Lake have adopted the goal and are developing community-based energy initiatives to encourage adoption of rooftop solar power and energy efficiency.


Help put Pacific Palisades on the Go 100 Percent Map of communities around the world that are demonstrating that being powered by 100% sustainable renewable energy is urgent and achievable.

Sign the petition for 100% clean power in Pacific Palisades.


RENEWABLE ENERGY & ENERGY EFFICIENCY

The Los Angeles DWP is investing in clean, renewable energy and energy efficiency -- and provides solar net-metering and purchase programs. Los Angeles County provide home energy upgrade rebates and financing. Open Neighborhoods reduces installation costs through solar group purchasing discounts for LA County residents, businesses and multi-family communities.
