Glendale Water & Power Events Slated for May

Glendale Water & Power will be hosting an array of events on various topics throughout May.
On May 9, the organization is inviting community members to a Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program application assistance event from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at 141 N. Glendale Ave.
GWP will provide application assistance to aid in payment of any unpaid electric and/or gas bills. PACE staff will be present to assess eligibility, help residents complete and submit applications, and address any inquiries regarding this federally funded grant. The walk-in event is the second application assistance event of the year, and no appointments are needed to attend.
The program can offer income-eligible residents a once-a-year payment credit of up to $3,000 on their electric or gas bill.
Attendees should bring a government-issued photo ID, proof of gross income for all household members from the past 30 days, or proof of current participation in CalFresh or CalWORKs and current electric and gas bill with meter readings.
The event will be on the first floor in the Perking Community Room 118. Parking is available in the Glendale Civic Center parking structure (with the entrance is on Wilson Avenue). There will be signs directing guests to the event from the parking structure.
If individuals cannot make it to the event, they can download the application online and mail it to PACE.
On May 18, GWP, in partnership with Foothill MWD and other local agencies, will be holding a rain barrel distribution event from 9 to 11 a.m.
Customers should preorder a rain barrel, and then plan to pick it up at the event from Foothill MWD at 4536 Hampton Road in La Cañada Flintridge.
The price of each rain barrel is $65. Residents get a $35 rebate per barrel. The maximum quantity is two rain barrel rebates per household.
On May 15 and 30, GWP is putting on solar and energy storage meetings from 6 to 8 p.m. The first event will be hosted at the Adult Recreation Center and the second will be at Sparr Heights Community Center.
“We are developing an equitable solar and energy storage adoption plan,” GWP said in a statement. “The goal of this solar and energy storage plan is to maximize the city of Glendale’s use of renewable energy to serve Glendale residents and businesses, as well as assess the feasibility of achieving the City Council’s target of 10% of our customers adopting solar and energy storage systems by Dec. 31, 2027.”
As part of GWP’s solar and energy storage plan, the organization engaged in comprehensive community outreach, to hear directly from customers as to what they would like to see implemented.
GWP also previously held three community meetings in February and March, taking input and feedback directly from our customers. Additionally, the agency distributed an online survey to extend the opportunity for customers to have their voices heard.
Once the draft plan is complete, two additional community meetings will be brought to residents, with present quantitative analytics where possible, its progress on the preliminary plan and input and feedback welcome from the public.
