County's Energy Management Program

Printer Friendly
Font Size Extra Large Font Size Large Font Size Default

San Diego County spends $23 million annually on utilities (electricity, natural gas, propane, water/sewer) to operate over 6.5 million square feet of County facilities, along with parks, airports and other infrastructure. We have a Strategic Energy Plan that provides both long and short term goals to reduce utility usage and costs and minimize our impact on the environment. San Diego County has enacted policies, established programs and implemented projects to achieve these goals.
