How The LADWP Creates Power Outages

July 12th, 2018 | by Susanna Schick

OK, so it's not fair they shoulder all the blame for these power outages. Its crews worked night and day to restore power to Angelenos suffocating in last weekend's epic heatstorm.

Last night, on a back lot at Universal Studios, Tesla unveiled the most promising facet of its impending merger with SolarCity -- solar shingles as chic and efficient as their cars. These were paired with new Powerwall home batteries that have double the energy density of Tesla's first Powerwall product.

The event was primarily for Tesla owners, so it took me longer to get up the hill from the studio gate than it did to ride my Zero from Vernon at rush hour.

January 24th, 2012 | by Susanna Schick

I spent the day at the Verdexchange conference, and heard a lot of interesting news on topics ranging from ESG reporting to Waste to Energy conversion and so much in between.
