Community Meetings on Proposed Electric Rate Adjustments

To preserve reliable infrastructure and continue the City’s pursuit of green initiatives, Glendale Water and Power is currently working on several initiatives and critical capital improvement projects, including: city solar energy & storage projects, Scholl Canyon renewable biogas project, Grayson energy center transformation project distribution system for building electrification and electric vehicle charging, and 4 kv to 12 kv conversion of distribution lines.

Based on a preliminary analysis, the implementation of these projects will necessitate an increase in electric rates. A comprehensive rate study by customer type will be presented to the Glendale City Council on Nov. 7. To learn more about the proposed electric rate adjustments, GWP customers are encouraged to attend one of the following community meetings: today, Thursday, Oct. 19 at 6:30 p.m. in the Sparr Heights Community Center,
