How will the electric rates encourage conservation and sustainability?

A:

The power rate ordinance continues LADWP's conservation-enhancing rate structure using three tiers, which establish blocks for energy consumption at three price levels. The tiered rate structure encourages residential customers with high energy use to reduce consumption during hot (peak) periods from June through September. The zones refer to geographic regions of the city (hot and cool).
