Sempra US Gas & Power has natural gas and renewable energy-powered power plants that generate enough electricity for more than 1 million homes. The company also operates natural gas storage facilities, pipeline and distribution facilities.

Sempra Energy, the parent company of Sempra US Gas & Power, was ranked fourth in both renewable energy sales and cumulative annual energy efficiency savings in a report released in July 2014 by Ceres and Clean Edge. More than 16 percent of Sempra’s retail electric sales, based on 2012 figures, were renewable. The company’s cumulative annual energy efficiency savings equivalent was 12.54 percent of their annual retail electric sales in 2012.

The report “Benchmarking Utility Clean Energy Deployment” assembled data from more than 10 sources and ranked 32 of the largest US investor-owned electric utility holding companies on three clean energy indicators.
