LADWP Reports on Power Outages to SLNC

At a recent meeting requested by the Silver Lake Neighborhood Council, representatives of the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) addressed concerns about the number of power outages in Silver Lake over the last year. LADWP confirmed that there have been over 16 outages in the community this year to date, primarily due to aging infrastructure, weather, population growth, and increased demand for appliances and electric cars. LADWP also reviewed system improvements that are underway in Silver Lake and shared a map of current projects at the meeting of the SLNC’s Transportation and Public Safety Committee on September 5.
