Palmdale City Library Open as Cooling Center
PALMDALE – The National Weather Service has issued an Excessive Heat Watch from Wednesday morning, Aug. 31, through Sunday evening, Sept. 4 for most of southern California, including the Antelope Valley. With dangerously hot conditions including temperatures up to 110 expected over the next few days, City of Palmdale officials have announced that the Palmdale City Library, located at 700 E. Palmdale Blvd., is a designated cooling center open to people of all ages.

The library’s hours are Monday through Thursday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.; Friday and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and Sunday, 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. The Library’s phone number is 661/267-5600.

Extreme heat will significantly increase the potential for heat related illnesses, particularly for those working or participating in outdoor activities. Residents should monitor the latest forecasts and warnings for updates on this situation.

Be prepared to drink plenty of fluids, stay in an air-conditioned room, stay out of the sun, and check up on relatives and neighbors. Young children and pets should never be left unattended in vehicles under any circumstances. This is especially true during warm or hot weather when car interiors can reach lethal temperatures in a matter of minutes.

Energy for Palmdale’s Independent Choice to Launch October 1, 2022
PALMDALE – Palmdale residents and businesses will soon have a new default energy provider: Energy for Palmdale’s Independent Choice (EPIC). Residential customers will automatically be enrolled in EPIC starting on October 1, 2022, and commercial customers on March 1, 2023.

“EPIC offers our community a locally controlled choice where there wasn’t one before,” said Palmdale Mayor Steve Hofbauer. “Our program will offer customers competitively priced clean energy, create opportunities for innovative community programs and help us significantly cut local greenhouse gas emissions to meet statewide climate goals.”

Created by and for the City of Palmdale, EPIC will offer clean energy at competitive rates. The program is an alternative to Southern California Edison (SCE) for power generation, meaning EPIC will purchase power on behalf of customers while SCE continues to deliver power to homes and businesses through its power lines.

Because EPIC is a locally managed entity, any excess revenue generated by the program will be reinvested in the community through innovative projects, programs, and other incentives. Additionally, through the development of future renewable energy projects, the program will support local job creation.
