This year, the Utility Board passed a Proclamation of Public Power Week proclaiming October 1-7 as a week-long recognition of the benefits of being a public power utility in the form of higher customer service and reliable, efficient and lower electricity rates.
The City of Azusa’s ownership of its electric utility has resulted in a significant public benefit to its residents and businesses. The local governance by the Utility Board continues to be an important aspect in leading Azusa to make it a better place in which to live and work, as well as protecting the global environment.
ALW also acknowledges the efforts of many Light & Water employees and power line workers who often work diligently in the background over the years to ensure continuous service and provide fast response when problems do arise. These concerted efforts have earned ALW the RP3 designation, one of 82 in the nation of more than 2000 public power utilities, recognizing it as one of the most reliable electric providers in the industry.
