HEATING UP HOMES THIS WINTER
During cold weather, we use up to 7x more natural gas than in the summer. The demand for gas increases to keep our homes warm and our water hot.
Although State regulators have confirmed that the Southern California Gas Company has taken steps to safely begin limited injection operations at the Aliso Canyon Gas Underground Storage facility that shutdown in October 2015, we are not out of the woods yet. The Los Angeles basin is still facing a winter with limited availability of natural gas locally until the Aliso Canyon is in full capacity. Azusa customers are once again encouraged to work together to help conserve energy on certain days by:
• Setting thermostat to 68° during winter months
• Reducing the temperature of water heater
• Washing clothes in cold water
