Recognition for our Conservation and Innovation Efforts
Environmental stewardship is an essential part of our culture and our day-to-day business. Here’s just a glimpse of some of our environmental activities, facts, and achievements.
In 2012 more than 20 percent of the electricity supplied was from renewable sources compared to less than 1 percent in 2002.
Over the last three years, customers have reduced their electricity use by more than 911 million kilowatt hours and their gas usage by more than 1.8 million therms. That’s enough electricity to power more than 150,000 homes for one year or taking more than 135,000 cars off the road for a year.
More than 41 percent of customer bills are sent electronically—well above the national utility average of 15.6 percent.
Almost 90% of our fleet passenger cars are alternate fuel (CNG, electric, hybrid).
Each year, our headquarters water filtration system use is equivalent to more than 200,000 (20 oz.) plastic bottles of water, which avoids plastic bottled water use.
More than 11,000 acres in land for environmental mitigation has been protected as part of the Sunrise Powerlink project; that is about nine Balboa Parks.
A dedicated group of employee volunteers focus on identifying and implementing new opportunities to reduce our environmental impacts on campus and promote sustainability.
