Energy and Water Resources Policy Principles

  • Policy Documents

In January 2019, ACWA released policy principles on “Energy and Water Resources” in California.

The updated principles will help guide ACWA’s ongoing advocacy efforts on energy-related issues that impact the greater water community.

The nine policy principles are intended to cover broader, overarching concerns, such as local control and cost-effective energy supplies, but also focus on more specific technologies and strategies that water agencies may wish to utilize in the future. The policy principles also envision ACWA members’ diverse energy generation as part of the State’s zero carbon energy future.
