One more thing we think is terrific about this area – out of many terrific things – is how eco-thoughtful so many businesses are out here.
So this post will be one of applause and kudos to a few businesses here in all of San Diego County who are working to live green in the workplace.
* Please give it up for the University of California, San Diego, which recently announced that it has “begun to install the components of a multi-faceted sustainable program,” one which eventually will generate 10 to 15 percent of the electricity it uses.
* Earthportal.org reported recently that San Diego State University’s College of Extended Studies “recently formed a new online certificate program in green building construction.” (The story at the link above is pretty long; the news about SDSU is in the third paragraph from the bottom.) Kudos!
* Applause to our favorite utility, San Diego Gas & Electric for its plans to construct solar panel “farms” at landfills, open spaces throughout the county, even shopping centers – even that icon of consumer excess La Jolla’s University Town Center – in the coming years. The solar panel project could generate enough electricity to send power to more than 50,000 homes.
The three mentioned above are just a tiny number of the businesses in this wonderful county who believe green is the most beautiful of colors.
Congratulations (and thank you!) to all the green-thinking and farsighted owners and managers of businesses in San Diego County who share GreenOfficeProjects.com’s vision of a better planet – and workplace!
