Why is it important?
How are we doing?
Since 2011, electricity consumption has increased slightly. While the City has pursued energy efficiency, it has also recently added or expanded new energy-intensive facilities like the Arcadia Water Treatment Plan, Pico Branch Library, Parking Structure 6 and Tongva Park.
This expansion of services and facilities will challenge the City's ability to reduce its own energy use, however, the net gain from the community benefits or other sustainability initiatives, like water self-sufficiency, will be much larger.
