Making a Difference with Local Institutional Partnerships

To help spread education and best practices about sustainability, we partner with a variety of different local institutions. With each different institution, we create unique programs that aim to achieve cost-effective, immediate and persistent energy and demand savings.

These partnerships establish a permanent framework for a sustainable, long-term and comprehensive energy management program geared towards energy efficiency, sustainability and climate change reduction goals.

California Dept. of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) Partnership

The CDCR Partnership is a statewide energy-efficiency program that accomplishes immediate and long-term peak energy demand savings through sustainable, long-term and comprehensive energy management.

State of California Partnership

Energy-efficiency projects reduce utility costs, create safer and healthier working environments, and are a vital step towards implementing a comprehensive sustainability policy.

Through our partnership with the State of California, we offer incentives, services, training and education, and resources to state government facilities. We support projects that include:

  • New construction

  • Retrofits

  • Monitoring-based retro commissioning

University and College Partnerships

We have partnered with the University of California (UC), California State University (CSU), and California Community Colleges (CCC) campuses to help them achieve greenhouse gas emission reduction goals and commercialize new technologies that can benefit the broader community. Through incentives for equipment improvements and training, as well as tools to help reduce energy consumption, we are helping them make their operations more energy-efficient.

University of San Diego

The University of San Diego and SDG&E are working to create a more sustainable campus with a smaller environmental footprint.

USD strives to reduce overall energy consumption and campus demand, increase the use of renewable energy, and educate campus audiences about energy savings practices not only on campus, but also in their careers and homes.
