Department of Water and Power
The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (DWP) provides utilities to much of the city.
There are substations (called Distributing Stations) in the city, numbered from 1 to 145 (with some missing numbers). Here is an Overpass query for them, and here is one that just returns their names, as a CSV file.
Also, here's some background: https://waterandpower.org/museum/Early_Power_DistributionStations.html
The numbers that appear to exist, but haven't yet been added to the map are:
