LADWP Reminder: Daylight Saving Time Begins This Sunday
Customers Reminded to Reset Clocks and Timers to Save Water, Power and Money
LOS ANGELES- With Daylight Saving Time beginning at 2:00 a.m. on Sunday, March 11, 2012, the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) reminds customers to turn clocks forward and reset lighting timers, programmable thermostats and sprinkler timers.
The City of Los Angeles is currently under mandatory water conservation, which restricts outdoor watering to times before 9:00 a.m. and after 4:00 p.m. Customers should note the change in time and adjust their sprinkler timers accordingly.
LADWP encourages customers to reset lighting timers to turn on only after daylight hours and to remain lit only as long as is necessary. Energy efficient compact fluorescent light bulbs are recommended for installation wherever possible.
The time change is a valuable opportunity for LADWP customers to review energy and water routines at home and in the workplace to seek out ways to conserve. Effective conservation can reduce utility bills and result in monetary savings for customers: save water, save power, save money. For tips on easy ways to conserve, and information on the Department’s water and energy conservation programs and incentives, please call 1-800-DIAL-DWP or visit www.ladwp.com
