Burbank has roots that go back to 1886, this was when the company was brought together to bring power and water to the area that was marked out for Burbank City. Work was undertaken and in 1913 Burbank sold bonds worth $20,000 to enable them to purchase the electricity facilities that were already there. They also sold on $50,000 which was used to pay for the water facilities that were already there but then owned by L.C Brand and El Miradero Water Company.
By 1914 the water system was ready to provide. They have the lowest water rates in the whole region and have already committed to ensuring 33% of their energy will be coming from sources that are renewable by 2020. They try to be as environmentally friendly as possible and even the water they provide is 15% recycled.
