SDG&E is helping to move climate action forward in San Diego.
SDG&E has supported the City’s and the state’s 100% renewable energy goals by being the first regulated CA utility to supply more than 40% clean energy.
ENABLING ZERO EMISSION TRANSPORTATION IN THE CITY OF SAN DIEGO
To date, we have built more than 1,800 electric vehicle charging stations throughout the City of San Diego (more than 3,000 region wide). With the support of SDG&E’s Power Your Drive program, the City installed 64 charging stations in 2019. These stations will service light-duty vehicles in the City’s electric vehicle fleet as well as employees’ personal vehicles at five locations around San Diego, including two police stations. In addition, these chargers make it possible for more residents and businesses to make the switch to electric cars, shuttles, and fleets.
Recent highlights of SDG&E and San Diego’s climate action efforts include:
San Diego has reduced its GHG emissions associated with electricity by 34% between 2010 and 2019, largely due to SDG&E procuring high amounts of renewables to serve customers.
Driving Energy Efficiency with the Make Your Mark Campaign
The City’s Building Energy Benchmarking Ordinance ensures building owners have the resources they need to reduce energy, save money and even create jobs through reporting their energy data. The City partnered with SDG&E for the “Make your Mark 2020” campaign, which found that approximately 50% of all building owners who participated in the campaign were in compliance with the ordinance.
