SD METRO will identify 25 Movers to Watch in 2011 in our January issue and you are invited to submit nominations through Dec. 2. You’ll find a nomination form on our Website (sandiegometro.com). Tell us why you think your nominee will make outstanding contributions in his or her chosen field or community next year and accomplishments so far.

University of San Diego Goes Solar

Close to 5,000 photovoltaic solar panels have been installed atop 11 buildings at the University of San Diego as part of a power purchase agreement between the university and AMSOLAR. The new solar system is expected to generate up to 15 percent of the university’s energy needs and establishes USD as the second largest solar energy producer of any private U.S. college and the 10th largest solar facility on a university campus in the country. Jared Blumenfield, the Environmental Protection Agency’s Pacific Southwest administrator, will appear at a morning program today to commemorate activation of the system.  At 10:30 a.m., Len Hering, vice president of business services and administration at USD, will lead a rooftop tour of the solar panel installation at the top of the Joan B. Kroc Institute for Peace & Justice. A celebration will follow featuring bands MayDay Parade and Every Avenue. USD President Mary E. Lyons also will speak. The  solar  panel installation has been conducted as part of a 25-year power purchase agreement with AMSOLAR and is supported in part by federal stimulus funding.

USD has entered into a comprehensive energy efficiency program to improve the sustainability of campus buildings through a partnership with Siemens Industry Inc. Siemens managed a multi-tiered project that encompasses nine prominent campus buildings over the past 10 monts. The improvements include upgrades to heating ventilation and air conditioning systems, new plumbing fixtures to reduce water consumption, lighting system upgrades and technologies that optimize fuel efficiency of USD’s central cooling and heating plant. The university said the improvements will dramatically reduce USD’s energy consumption and will reduce water usage 27 percent to levels not seen since 1991, when the campus was about half as large and had 2,600 fewer students. USD is working on an $8.2 million efficiency project to lighting, heating and water systems that will save the university more than $1 million annually.

Voice Your Opinion


We Want Your Opinions on San Diego’s Big Issues In the coming months, Probosky Research (one of California’s leading opinion research firms) will continue its partnership with SD METRO to survey San Diego residents about topics of interest to our readers. We’d like to throw open the door for suggestions for topics. What do you want to know? What do you think you know, but aren’t sure? What are you certain you know, but want to prove it beyond doubt? Ideally, we’d like to see questions that have to do with public policy.

Some areas may include Mayor Filner’s first 100 days job performance, should the city be responsible for economic growth and the creation of new jobs, how important are infrastructure improvements to our daily lives (streets and bridges, etc.), how important is water independence, how satisfied are residents with public transit or how do city residents value Balboa Park and other open spaces? Do you believe the City Council should revive the Plaza de Panama plan for Balboa Park?
