The Carlsbad Chamber of Commerce recently took a field trip to San Diego Gas & Electric’s (SDG&E) Energy Innovation Center (EIC). Led by Chamber Sustainability Committee Co-Chairman Ross Fields, the field trip included two guest speakers, Sustainability Manager of Palomar Health Barbara Hamilton, and SDG&E’s Manager of Environmental Strategy and Sustainability Grant Frost. Other highlights of the educational field trip included an open-panel discussion with SDG&E’s Public Affairs Manager Warren Ruis and Barbara Hamilton, which covered topics such as the future of sustainable energy and how the public can be educated on the importance of implementing strategies for sustainability at home and in the workplace. The visit also included a tour of the EIC and its high-efficiency appliances and lighting.
