GWP Holds Community Meetings

Glendale Water and Power (GWP) announced it is conducting a series of community meetings to receive feedback and input directly from Glendale residents in the development of its Solar and Energy Storage Plan.

In August 2022, the Glendale City Council passed a resolution expressing its intent to adopt policies and practices aimed at achieving the goal of having at least 10% of GWP customers adopt solar and energy storage systems by 2027 and develop additional demand management measures with a minimum total peak dispatchable and peak-load-reducing capacity of 100 megawatts (MW). The goal of this solar and energy storage plan is to maximize the City of Glendale’s use of renewable energy to serve the current and future energy needs of Glendale residents.

Glendale Water and Power is hosting community meetings:

On Wednesday, May 15 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. ­– Adult Recreation Center

On Thursday, May 30 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. – Sparr Heights Community Center
