Research and Development

Reducing the environmental impact for us and our customers.

SoCalGas® is consistently looking for opportunities to reduce our environmental impact as well as the impact of our customers. Our Research, Development and Demonstration (RD&D) department collaborates with customers, businesses and manufacturers in search of potential projects to test new products and technologies that will save energy and reduce emissions. These projects not only help meet state and federal requirements for reducing greenhouse gases and emissions but can create huge cost savings for our customers.
