This week, Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) testified before the Los Angeles City Council on the recently released Aliso Canyon Risk Assessment Report regarding the reliability of the power grid for summer 2016. This report was issued by the California Public Utilities Commission, the California Energy Commission, the California Independent System Operator, LADWP, and Southern California Gas Company (SoCalGas) last month.
In the wake of the largest gas leak in US history, we are beginning to learn its far reaching affects for our region. SoCalGas' negligence in maintaining their infrastructure has left everyone with two unacceptable options: either they inject gas into their facility that has not been independently inspected or declared safe, posing an immediate risk to thousands of local residents, or we endure scheduled rolling blackouts in a region known for its extreme temperatures during the summer months potentially risking the lives of our most vulnerable.
