Clean energy business has been productive at the SDG&E parent company planning to open its new tall downtown building in Spring in 2015. Sempra announced in February, its operations and maintenance facility at its Clean Energy Innovation Center in Clairemont earned a double Platinum LEED certification from the U.S. Green Building Council.

The new headquarters is designed to meet LEED Gold standards. Earlier in the week, cranes stood high above Eighth Avenue and Seventh Avenue at the block worksite. Construction trucks and crew had taken over the Eight Avenue roadside. On Seventh Avenue, a shovel moved forward and back slow, while construction workers worked on the west side road.
