The energy industry continues to evolve and at Sempra U.S. Gas & Power, we prepare for tomorrow’s challenges by developing innovative clean energy solutions.
At Sempra U.S. Gas & Power, we help accelerate the transition to a cleaner energy future by focusing on a Low-Emission Energy model that includes a combination of solar, wind and clean natural gas. This approach delivers a reliable supply of energy to consumers with less impact on the environment. In 2013, our renewable energy power plants generated enough electricity to power more than 400,000 homes and offset CO2 emissions by about 3.4 million tons annually, the equivalent of taking 644,505 cars off the road.
Alternative energy plays a more prominent role, delivering the next generation of clean, emission-free power. But even with the addition of more solar and wind projects, the necessity of power generated by fossil fuels remains. As the cleanest fossil fuel, natural gas has 50 percent fewer emissions than coal. And it provides round-the-clock electricity and critical back up to renewable power sources when the wind or sun isn’t available.
We believe in change, and take it upon ourselves to assist the transition to a cleaner energy future. We deliver reliable energy in more responsible ways, using natural gas and innovative technologies for low and zero-emission energy generation.
