SDGE is delivering a bright energy future that San Diego deserves.

What People Are Saying About SDG&E

San Diego and Southern Orange County have been home to us for nearly 140 years. As a partner to and member of these communities, we care about making a positive impact.

Clean Energy

“SDG&E has proven itself to be a dedicated community partner and an expert in delivering safe and reliable power to our residents and businesses. Both safety and reliability are essential service criteria for IEA members whose companies account for more than 55,000 employees in the San Diego region alone, and whose manufacturing processes are completely dependent on a reliable power source.

SDG&E’s experience with integrating renewable energy and advanced storage into the local grid will be instrumental as the City implements its aggressive decarbonization goals.”

Diverse Supplier

“Many small businesses like mine are thriving and many jobs have been created in San Diego, thanks to SDG&E’s commitment to supplier diversity. Although Southland Electric has worked with SDG&E for many years, our opportunities for growth skyrocketed when SDG&E’s supplier diversity team invited us to participate in its “Best in Class” vendor recognition program. SDG&E helped take my company to the next level and continues to support and inspire me to go for the gold!”

Leanne Peterson, President of Southland Electric

“SDG&E has an exemplary supplier diversity program that goes above and beyond to help small businesses succeed. Their procurement team provides the technical support we need to grow our business and compete for contracts. Seven years ago, we started as a subconsultant on an SDG&E project. Today we are a prime contractor for several projects, employ 80 people in the San Diego area alone and occupy a 38,000-square-foot office building in Kearny Mesa.”

Wildfire Mitigation

“I want you to know that SDG&E and the people who work there want to keep you safe, because they too live in our communities and they have family here as well. They’re not only supplying you with the energy that you need, but also the safety that’s required to deliver that energy so that we all can remain safe and have happy lives in San Diego County.”

Community Involvement

“SDG&E and its employees are there when the community needs support, and it’s no different today as our region and country face the challenges of the pandemic and the systemic changes we must make to eliminate racial inequity. At The San Diego Foundation, we strive for an inclusive community where everyone has equitable access to opportunity. SDG&E’s multi-year commitment will assist in the equitable recovery of San Diegans across our region.”

Mark Stuart, President and CEO of The San Diego Foundation

“SDG&E has provided much-needed food donations to my furloughed members during these unprecedented times and has dedicated staff to work with Local 30, on a weekly basis, to help my membership with bill assistance and navigation of the LIHEAP process. Their engagement with my membership has been phenomenal and extremely helpful during COVID-19.”

Labor

“SDG&E has been a collaborative working families employer for decades. Our internal and contracted SDG&E crews, who are members of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers and many other represented bargaining units have the skills and training to build what has been recognized as the cleanest, safest and most reliable grid in the entire country.”
