San Diego Regional Energy Partnership


On behalf of the San Diego Regional Energy Partnership (SDREP), CSE conducted education and outreach to businesses and multi-family building owners in the San Diego region. CSE administered the San Diego Regional Green Business Network (SDRGBN) which offers businesses the opportunity to engage in resources, workshops, events and community recognition programs designed to facilitate energy saving actions.

Our expert staff also provided technical assistance for commercial and multi-family building operators conducting energy benchmarking using ENERGY STAR® Portfolio Manager® through the Benchmarking Coach program.

SDREP was a utility ratepayer-funded collaboration of local governments and San Diego Gas & Electric with the goal of advancing energy efficiency in buildings.
