A Sustainable Future

At Pasadena Water and Power, we understand that the choices we make today will help make a better future. PWP is committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions by using a balanced and sustainable mix of energy sources. Additionally, we help customers become more efficient users of energy and water by offering programs for those that want to do more to protect the planet.

Our Power Portfolio

PWP has committed to procuring 60% of the power the City uses from renewable energy sources such as wind, solar, geothermal, biomass, and small hydroelectric by 2030, as required by State law under California’s Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS).

Additionally, the Pasadena City Council passed a resolution on January 30, 2023, setting a policy goal to source 100% of Pasadena’s electricity from carbon free sources by the end of 2030. The Power Integrated Resource Plan (IRP) process will be utilized to plan multiple approaches while optimizing affordability, rate equity, stability, and reliability of electricity.

PWP continues to expand its use of renewable resources through a number of sustainable projects. Here is a detailed look at our renewable energy sources:
