L.A. to Launch Major Renewable Energy Project

Project Will Deliver Clean, Green Power to L.A. Residents and Help Meet City's Goal of Achieving 20% Clean Energy by 2010 LOS ANGELES

Taking a significant step forward in his efforts to make Los Angeles the cleanest and greenest big city in America, L.A. Mayor Antonio R. Villaraigosa will announce that the City will construct a major transmission line to deliver "green" renewable energy to Los Angeles at a press conference on Wednesday, November 16, 2005 at 1:30 p.m. in North Hollywood.

The effort will be undertaken through a partnership between the City, its Department of Water and Power, the Imperial Irrigation District (IID) and the non-profit Citizens Energy and will deliver clean, renewable energy to Southern California while also generating funds to help low-income residents.

The Mayor will be joined by key partners in the project, including former Congressman and now Chairman and President of Citizens Energy, Joseph P. Kennedy II, and Mary Nichols, President of the City's Board of Water and Power Commissioners.
