SDG&E Opens Renewable Resource Center

San Diego Gas & Electric said today it is opening a “renewable energy resource center” in El Centro, CA, the Imperial County seat about 114 miles east of San Diego, to help accelerate the development of clean energy and clean jobs. SDG&E, a subsidiary of San Diego’s Sempra Energy, said the center also will serve as the local development office for the Sunrise Powerlink, a 123-mile, 500-kilovolt transmission line from El Centro to San Diego. Construction of the line is expected to begin next year.

    More green washing by SDG&E?

    Transmission is not the answer. We want power generated where it is being used.

    Cutting a path 123 miles through the San Diego backcountry is not environmentally friendly.
