DH Green Energy provided energy consulting and design services to San Diego International Airport on their new 12-kV Micro-Grid electrical distribution systems, an unprecedented underground distribution system of its kind in the world, permitting the Airport to own and operate its own electric utility system, generating a yearly savings of $6.4 million in energy costs while reducing the Airport’s yearly carbon footprint of “200,000” tons. Aside from our technical expertise, this monumental accomplishment is highly contributed through DH Green Energy’s profound knowledge and experience with federal, state, and local utility regulatory policies and laws, granting us the ability to develop strategies that were advantageous to the Airport.
