CCSC’s Alex Ricklefs featured in LA Times Op-ed!

If L.A. wants to avoid summer blackouts and another Aliso Canyon, we need to reinvent our energy system. Here’s how…

“Here in the Southland, we can help solve this part of the energy puzzle by using UCLA’s California Center for Sustainability Energy Atlas. The atlas displays aggregated electricity and natural gas billing data for the L.A. area, which can be used to analyze energy consumption for specific neighborhoods by characteristics such as building type, building size or household income.  This data can help policy makers and utilities go neighborhood to neighborhood, building to building, focusing on where to construct new microgrids or where conservation might be more fruitful.”
