Plan to identify electricity hot zones in L.A.

May 5, 2008 12:00:00 AM PDT
On Tuesday the Department of Water and Power will consider a plan to identify hot zones for electricity usage.The zones would mean high rates for residents who use the most power, but would allow some customers to use more electricity before they got bumped into a higher tier.

Some of the hot zones being considered are the San Fernando Valley, south Los Angeles and the eastern half of the city.

The DWP hopes the plan will encourage conservation. It already uses this kind of system to assess water charges.
