On July 26, San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E) presented the University of California, San Diego (UC San Diego) with a $7.2 million check representing energy efficiency incentives earned through implementation of 30 energy efficiency projects from 2010 to 2012.

Through the 30 projects implemented over three years, the utility says UC San Diego has saved more than 21 million kWh and 2.1 million therms, as well as reduced more than 2 MW of demand. The total incentives earned by UC San Diego include $330,000 in 2010, $2.5 million in 2011 and $4.4 million in 2012.

"This recognition from San Diego Gas & Electric is a great example of how UC San Diego's commitment to energy efficiency and protecting the environment helps our campus control costs, conserve resources and contribute to a more sustainable future," says Gary C. Matthews, UC San Diego's vice chancellor for resource management and planning.
