The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) will provide up to $72.5 million dollars to help the nation’s second largest school district save energy and water, while reducing their utility bills, under a renewed agreement that will continue through 2025.

The new agreement, approved by the Board of Water and Power Commissioners and the LAUSD Board of Education, will translate into energy and water efficiency retrofits throughout the school district and new water and energy savings technology to be installed at LAUSD school campuses, offices and facilities. The partnership is mutually beneficial as it will also help meet LADWP’s aggressive energy efficiency and water conservation goals for achieving 100% renewable energy and reducing water use by 25% by 2035.

Energy efficiency upgrades at LAUSD facilities, such as LED lighting, were completed through $42 million provided by LADWP in 2015.
