Title:Los Angeles Department of Water & Power Achieves Demand Management Goals with Unique Volumetric Rate Structure and Long-Term Planning
The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (DWP) serves the City of Los Angeles and some small adjacent areas. The City’s increasing block rate was developed from a Citizens Blue Ribbon Committee in 1993 and has been widely seen as a success that helped flatten water demand in spite of a growing population and economy. DWP’s rate structure has maintained required utility revenues, reinforced incentives to use water efficiently, and has achieved broad customer acceptance within a major metropolitan area having a diverse customer base.
