Southern California Gas Co. Key Developments

Southern California Gas Co. and California Energy Commission Collaborate to Advance Hyperlight Technology

Southern California Gas Co. has joined with the California Energy Commission to support the commercialization of a low-cost, commercial-scale solar thermal energy technology with the promise to help businesses save money, conserve energy and support California's environmental goals. Currently operating at the San Diego State University (SDSU) Center for Energy Sustainability in Brawley, Calif., the Hyperlight solar thermal technology harnesses the sun's energy using an innovative, low-cost design. Water-filled trays support solar reflectors in long, transparent tubes that aim sunlight onto a heat collecting element. The high-efficiency system produces high-temperature steam that can serve a range of commercial and agricultural business applications. The Commission and SoCalGas provided $2 million in funding for the Hyperlight technology development and demonstration project through the Commission's Public Interest Energy Research (PIER) program and SoCalGas own innovation development initiatives. PIER supports public interest research and development that helps improve the quality of life in California by bringing environmentally safe, reliable, and affordable energy services and products to the marketplace.
