Proposed Biogas Renewable Generation Project
The Biogas Renewable Generation Project will generate approximately 12 megawatts of renewable green energy for the City of Glendale on a three-acre portion of the City landfill. The Proposed Project would beneficially utilize the naturally recurring landfill gas locally without having to transport the gas offsite. This naturally occurring renewable fuel will generate electric energy for local consumption. For more information about this project, please visit GlendaleBiogasGeneration.com
Save Energy On Hot Days
Below are some tips to help you conserve during hot days:
- Set your thermostat to 78 degrees.
- Wait until 8 p.m. or later to use major appliances.
- Use ceiling fans instead of your AC to stay cool when you're home.
- Cook outdoors if possible to prevent heat from building up indoors.
- Replace old incandescent bulbs with LED light bulbs. Most of the energy from incandescent bulbs is given off as heat.
- Turn off lights in rooms that are not used.
Join us for the next Customer Service in Your Neighborhood Event at the Pacific Community Center, Sycamore Room on December 2nd from 10 am - 1 pm.
- Make an electronic payment

Don't Fall Victim to Utility Scams
Utility fraud calls and scams can be convincing. Anyone can be at risk of getting scammed, but by knowing our procedures you can help prevent fraud and stay safe from scammers that want to steal your information. Below are some safety procedures to keep in mind:
- We never ask for payments over the phone or at your home or business. Over the phone payments can only be made through our IVR system, never with a live person. If you receive a call asking to pay, hang up immediately.
- We never visit residential customers to solicit program enrollment.
- We never enter a home to check water quality. All water quality visits are scheduled with customers and the water is tested outdoors. No need to be present at the time of testing.
- All GWP employees carry photo identification and will display it when asked.
If you notice any suspicious activity near your residence or are contacted by someone collecting money or impersonating City personnel, please contact the Glendale Police Department at 818-548-4911 immediately. For more information on how to stay safe from scams click here.
