Break Free from Fossil Fuels
LA's Gas Plants Got to Go!
Currently, the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) operates four large gas power plants in the Los Angeles basin. In order to achieve our 100% renewable future, LA must break free from fossil fuels by retiring all four of these in-basin gas plants as soon as possible. Yet, instead of embracing our clean energy future by making plans to retire these aging and heavily polluting facilities, the LADWP wants to spend billions of dollars to rebuild three of these gas plants from the ground up!
These gas plants are a massive waste of money that would keep are city anchored to fossil fuels for decades to come. But it's not too late: there's still time to stop LADWP from making this costly mistake.
Our coalition is working with communities across the city to tell the LADWP that those dirty fossil fuel days are behind us and make it clear that no neighborhood in LA wants a new gas plant. Rather than wasting money on outdated and unnecessary gas plants, we urge the DWP to focus on investments which make our grid cleaner, stronger and more resilient.
