LAWA 2022 Sustainability Report


Receiving Station X Receiving Station X (RS-X), which broke ground in 2020, was under construction throughout 2021 and was completed in May 2022. Construction was transferred to LADWP in 2022 for the final phase of completion. The RS-X will provide LAX with additional power reliability, redundancy, and capacity. It consists of a 4,800 square foot concrete, single-story building with a control room with transmission feeders to the 230kV LADWP transmission lines and electrical vaults, as well as distribution feeders from RS-X to LAX. The project provides additional resiliency, redundancy, and provides additional capacity in support of LAX’s modernization projects. “The safety, security and reliability of our airport is key for our guests and employees, and this includes ensuring we have reliable power at all times,” —Justin Erbacci, Chief Executive Officer, LAWA.

Los Angeles Department of Buildings and Safety Existing Buildings Energy & Water Efficiency Program Ordinance The Los Angeles Department of Building and Safety (LADBS) Existing Buildings Energy & Water Efficiency (EBEWE) Program Ordinance was established by Los Angeles Municipal Code Division 97 and implemented in 2017. The Ordinance consists of two parts: ƒ Benchmarking ƒ Audits and Retro-Commissioning LAWA continues to adhere to the EBEWE Program Ordinance by conducting annual benchmarking, audits, and retro- commissioning to buildings subject to the ordinance.


Since 2011, energy consumption per passenger decreased by 20.7% exceeding the SAP goal of a 15% reduction by 2025.

The airport reduced energy by 6,000 kW over 2022 through the demand response program by increasing chilled water temperatures, running combustion turbine generators, and other voluntary energy savings measures throughout LAX.
