San Diego Gas & Electric's (SDG&E) Energy Innovation Center in the Clairemont, California area received double-platinum LEED certification status from the U.S. Green Building Council.

The newly earned 2013 LEED Platinum certification for existing buildings operations and maintenance is in addition to the facility's LEED Platinum status earned in 2012 for new construction.

The U.S. Green Building Council reports that the Energy Innovation Center is the first facility in the region to have achieved double-platinum status for certification of both new construction and existing buildings operations and maintenance.

The Energy Innovation Center is a 27,000-foot demonstration facility where SDG&E's residential and business customers can learn about energy efficiency, renewable energy, sustainability and alternative fuel technologies.

To meet the LEED EBOM Platinum certification, the SDG&E Energy Innovation Center team developed policies and procedures that place energy efficiency and sustainability at the center of all daily activities.
