Mayor Villaraigosa today announced historic actions by the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) that will eliminate Los Angeles' reliance on dirty coal power by no later than 2025.

Los Angeles will be the first big U.S. city to be 100% coal-free, reducing LADWP carbon emissions by 58% and citywide emissions by 40% below 1990 levels.

Los Angeles has already reduced greenhouse gas emissions by more than 28% below 1990 levels, which is more than any other major U.S. city and four times what the Kyoto Protocol requires.
