SDG&E: Electric vehicles give spring cleaning a whole new meaning

SDG&E: Electric vehicles give spring cleaning a whole new meaning

Spring is here and with it comes a breath of fresh air. The world around us gets a little greener, and that’s the way San Diego Gas & Electric likes it. That’s why we are helping business owners, like you, install electric vehicle (EV) chargers at your properties. Together, we can support a spring clean feel in the San Diego air that lasts all year long. It starts with our Power Your Drive program. We’re installing thousands of EV charging ports at apartments, condo complexes and workplaces. Why? • EVs promote cleaner air. • EVs play a critical role in meeting state and local climate goals. • Demand for EVs is not slowing down.

SDG&E: Empower employees to help save energy

SDG&E: Empower employees to help save energy

Buildings don’t use energy – people do. Your employees affect a building’s energy performance. Many people already save energy at home. Show them the connections between those good behaviors and what they can do at work. It’s the little things that, when added together, can make a big difference. High utility costs can be a result of paying for energy that is wasted by lights, equipment, and HVAC systems that are left on for long periods while not in use.

SDG&E: Pricing plans for businesses based on time of day

SDG&E: Pricing plans for businesses based on time of day

It’s time to start thinking about energy differently. To support the statewide commitment to reliable and sustainable energy, time of use pricing plans are the current standard for business customers. These plans are based on both how much, and when, you use energy and offer you choices on how to better manage and control your costs. Time of use pricing plans split the day into different time periods, on-peak and off-peak.  During peak hours, prices are higher as the demand for electricity increases. The cost to produce and deliver electricity also increases. By shifting energy use to off-peak times, you decrease the demand for energy, thus saving on energy costs.
