Reducing the environmental impact for us and our customers.

Technology Innovation Series

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. The Technology Innovation video series explores the ways RD&D works directly with customers and manufacturers to test products in real world applications, measure results, determine and address potential problems and commercialize the final technology for wider market applications.
