Making Sure Electricity is Smooth

Dec/Jan 08
For many businesses, clean and uninterrupted power is an absolute necessity. The Smooth Power program offered by the Los Angeles Department of Water & Power is for these types of businesses.

Smooth Power offers technical assistance as well as project financing for commercial and industrial customers. Products and services it makes available include suppression systems, automated-transfer-switch equipment, and dual-source feeds.

Meter-based surge suppression systems offer excellent protection against power spikes. Distributed generation systems feature onsite backup generators to ensure reliability. Automatic transfer switches are for businesses served by dual power feeds, allowing for a smooth changeover should one power source fail. And the utility offers technical consulting services to help businesses enhance their power quality and reliability.
