Department of Water Resources (DWR)
WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE'RE DOING
The Department of Water Resources (DWR) is responsible for managing and protecting California’s water. DWR works with other agencies to benefit the state’s people, and to protect, restore, and enhance the natural and human environments. Although not associated with retail water or electricity use, the State Water Project (SWP) invests in development of renewable energy projects including the construction of a solar project on site. The SWP’s Southern Field Division headquarters is also a Platinum LEED building.
DWR supports retail renewable programs by participating in SMUD’s Commercial Greenergy Program and Commercial Carbon Offset Program. In addition, DWR has been improving the lighting efficiency of its buildings; however, this effort has not been reflected in DWR’s retail energy use since it is more than offset by the catastrophic loss of one of its hydroelectric power plants in November 2012. Previously, this plant directly provided energy to support its station load. However, when the plant was shut down, the plant’s station load relied entirely on retail energy service for on-going repair work to recover the plant, which added an average of 90,000 kWh per month to DWR’s retail energy use. DWR expects to complete the repair work by the end of 2018, at which time the plant will resume supplying energy to it station load, and retail energy use will return to normal level.
