Event description

Description

This event is part of Walktober, an annual national event to get people walking in their communities! https://www.pasadenacsc.org/walktober2018

NOTE: PWP has graciously granted us a second session because the first one was so popular! Eventbrite tickets are FREE but required for attendance! Tickets become available on October 12 at 12 PM noon.

We anticipate this walk to be one of our most popular events. For that reason, if you are lucky enough to get a ticket, but are unable to attend, please make every effort to return your ticket or find someone to take your place. E-mail us at info@pasadenacsc.org if you need help returning your ticket or finding a replacement.




The Glenarm Power Plant has been keeping the lights on in Pasadena since 1907, starting with the streetlights lining Glenarm and expanding to meet the City’s growing needs. A major repowering in 2016 is helping reduce the city’s fuel consumption and emissions, lower its carbon footprint, increase efficiency, and better integrate renewable energy into its grid by backstopping it with a reliable alternative when needed. The facility is an essential component of the City’s reliable supply of electricity while serving as a step toward meeting its sustainability goals.

On this tour, we have a rare opportunity to explore the new state-of-the-art power plant and get a glimpse into the history of the City’s power generation.


Participants should observe the following:

  • The plant is an industrial facility and industrial hazards do exist at the plant

  • No open-toed or high-heeled shoes

  • Long pants are recommended; skirts are not (for the sake of modesty)


Hosted by Pasadena Complete Streets Coalition (https://www.pasadenacsc.org/) and Pasadena Water and Power (https://ww5.cityofpasadena.net/water-and-power/).
