School board member Tamar Galatzan called Monday on the Department of Water and Power to renew an agreement that allows the Los Angeles Unified School District to receive reduced rates on its utility bills.
Galatzan argued that the DWP should craft a new power agreement that allows the district to add solar power to its facilities and gain the financial benefits of other energy-saving measures. Under the current pact, the school district is prohibited from doing so, Galatzan said.
A DWP official did not respond to a call seeking comment. LAUSD’s current energy agreement is slated to expire today, according to district officials.
