      FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

      LADWP News Notification

      Customers Reminded to Reset Sprinkler and Lighting Timers to Save Water, Power and Money

      LOS ANGELES — With Daylight Saving Time ending at 2:00 a.m. on Sunday, November 6, 2011, the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) reminds customers to turn clocks back and reset lighting timers, programmable thermostats and sprinkler timers.
      The City of Los Angeles is currently under mandatory water conservation, which restricts outdoor watering to times before 9:00 a.m. and after 4:00 p.m. Customers should note the change in time and adjust their sprinkler timers accordingly.

      LADWP encourages customers to reset lighting timers to turn on only after daylight hours and to remain lit only as long as is necessary. Energy efficient compact fluorescent light bulbs are recommended for installation wherever possible.

      The time change is a valuable opportunity for LADWP customers to review energy and water routines at home and in the workplace to seek out ways to conserve. Effective conservation can reduce utility bills and result in monetary savings for customers: save water, save power, save money. For tips on easy ways to conserve, and information on the Department's many water and energy conservation programs and incentives, please visit www.ladwp.com.

        LADWP News Notification

        LOS ANGELES — With Daylight Saving Time ending at 2:00 a.m. on Sunday, November 4, 2012, the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) reminds customers to set their clocks back one hour, and reset lighting timers, programmable thermostats and sprinkler timers.

        In the City of Los Angeles, outdoor watering is restricted to hours before 9:00 a.m. and after 4:00 p.m. With cooler fall temperatures, and as the rainy season approaches, LADWP encourages customers to adjust their sprinkler timers and reduce outdoor watering. Fall is also an excellent time for outdoor planting and customers who replace their lawn with climate-appropriate flowers, shrubs, trees and water-permeable hardscape are eligible to receive $1.50 for every square foot of lawn under the LADWP's California-Friendly Landscape Incentive Program.

        LADWP also encourages customers to reset their lighting timers to turn on only after daylight hours and to remain lit only as long as necessary. Energy efficient compact fluorescent light (CFL) bulbs and long-life LED lights are recommended for installation wherever possible. CFL and LED lights may cost a little more at the outset, but they use less electricity, last longer and save customers money in the long run.

        The time change presents a valuable opportunity for LADWP customers to review energy and water routines at home and in the workplace to seek out ways to conserve. Effective conservation can help customers better manage utility costs and save money.
