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.
