The Glendale City Council voted unanimously on March 1, 2022, to revise its prior 3-2 vote from February 15, when it approved a $260 million purchase of gas generation equipment. The new vote defers the decision on purchasing the gas equipment until the end of 2022 so that clean energy and other alternatives can be explored.
This week at City Council: Council considers a proposal from Councilmember Brotman that would move forward with important parts of the Alternative 7 Grayson Repowering project, but delay purchase of the five Warsila gas engines. The motion is to direct staff to look for additional distributed clean energy resources and to work with LA on obtaining additional reserves. The resolution provides direction related to the Alternative 7 schedule, which would delay a decision on the purchase of gas engines, while GWP works to eliminate or reduce the need for them.
Council will consider Councilmember Brotman’s motion at their next meeting, March 1. This is our LAST CHANCE to insist that Glendale commit to a clean energy agenda starting now.
