Sustainability

Energy and Water Conservation Program

The LADWP education partnership grant addresses outreach for energy and water conservation through five components.

Community Workshops

A series of workshops focusing on three areas – energy conservation and efficiency, water conservation, and LADWP’s community solar program will be held in the community for the public.

Outreach to Business Owners

Students participating in the Minor in Sustainability will reach out to local businesses in a consulting capacity. These students will identify high commercial users of energy and water. Then students will develop and present a business proposal to these commercial entities.
