Smart Grid

The Smart Grid Industry in San Diego: Leading the smart grid movement.

San Diego leads in energy efficiency and smart grid technology, a vision that’s attracted not only major media coverage, but also White House recognition. Our utility, San Diego Gas & Electric, continually ranks as the nation’s smartest utility. The region is home to pioneering universities; such as UC San Diego with its world-renowned microgrid that generates 92% of campus power on site. San Diego’s international airport recently completed a $1 billion renovation centered on sustainable design. The U.S. military also looks to San Diego to expand its cleantech practices and goals. Camp Pendleton’s use of solar energy makes it one of the greenest armed forces bases in the world along with its sophisticated microgrid.
