As many in Los Angeles begin holiday celebrations, nearly a half million residents will receive special packages in their mailboxes, courtesy of Southern California Gas Co. (SoCalGas) and the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP). The boxes contain simple devices that the utilities’ customers can easily install to save water and natural gas over the holidays and throughout the coming years. Single-family and multi-family residents who had not received similar devices through other SoCalGas or LADWP water conservation programs in recent years were selected to receive the kits. All totaled, the program has the potential to reduce natural gas use in Los Angeles by about 5.4 million therms a year, and water consumption by 5.7 billion gallons each year.
Each package contains a water-efficient showerhead; two bathroom faucet aerators; a kitchen faucet aerator; and a device that alerts residents when their HVAC filter needs changing. Customers will also receive information on energy-saving water heaters, smart thermostats, clothes dryers and other appliances that are eligible for SoCalGas rebates.
