Through Glendale Water & Power’s Home Energy Reports Program, our customers receive a
quarterly report that provides information to help them understand their home's energy usage and
find smart ways to make their home more efficient. Most people are eager to make their home more
efficient in order to save money, but they're not always sure how or where to start. The Home
Energy Reports program is designed to provide you more information about your energy use with
easy and helpful tips to help you so you can make informed choices and save money. Currently our
customers are saving an average of 4% on their GWP bills each year as a result of these reports.
We provide energy-saving tips not only through the reports, but also through our Energy Insider
website. To access your report
online click here. In the next few months your report
will also have information from your Digital Meter so that you can see your energy usage in near
real time. We are providing this service as an educational tool to help you understand your
home's energy use and to share ideas on how you might be able to save money. If you don't find
this program useful, give us a call and we can remove you from the program. (818) 548-3300.
How the Home Energy Report Works
What is in the report?
Home Energy Reports are designed to provide new information to help you understand your
home's energy usage and find smart ways to make your home more efficient. Each report
will provide you with new information including:
- Information on your home's energy use: For the first time, you'll be able to
see your home's energy use in the context of the energy use of 100 anonymous
nearby homes that are similar in size.
- Progress tracking: You'll also see how your home's energy use changes over time
and across seasons.
- Ideas on Energy Efficiency: On each report, you can find ways to save energy,
including information on the rebates and other special programs we offer.
How do I interpret the graphs in the report?
- Front Page:
Each graph shows your energy use (gray bar/line), the average use of all selected neighbors (blue bar/line),
and the average use of the most efficient neighbors (green bar/line). You can see if your energy use is more
or less than your neighbors' energy use for the current period, and also for the last 12 months.
- Back Page: Bars compare total energy use for the year to-date versus the same period last year.
How do you determine the size of my home and why might the square footage be different
from what I'd expect?
The square footage of your home that we use in the Home Energy Report is based on data that is
collected from your county assessor's office about your home.
How do you calculate the cost or savings in the report?
The 12 month cost or savings is approximately how much more or less you will pay for energy
if your energy use and patterns change to match your neighbors. The cost calculations are
made using today's current energy rates.
Your Personal Information/Comparison
We only use your information to provide useful insights about your energy use. Your information
is compiled anonymously and not shared with any of your neighbors. Only you can see your personal
- Each report will compare a recipient's energy usage against 100 anonymous customers who live
in similarly-sized homes that are close in proximity. Homes are chosen based upon a defined set of
characteristics, including similar energy needs, home size and heating source.
- The neighbor comparison feature is designed to maintain 100% privacy. The data is always
presented in aggregate; the report only shows an average of 100 anonymous customers.
- Only the customer's own detailed energy information is included in the reports. Customers only
see the energy comparison representing the average of 100 anonymous neighbors.
- Glendale Water & Power does not have access to customer's reports and does not see
customer's progress or comparisons.
- Customers that do not want to receive the reports can simply opt out of the program. (To date,
less than 2% of customers have chosen to opt out.)
To date this program has helped GWP customers to save over 5,787,000 kWh of electricity.
All customers now have access to this program online
including access to over 100 ideas and tips on how to save money and conserve.
