Energy & Water Committee

The Energy & Water Committee works to ensure the region’s energy and water supplies remain dependable and cost-effective.

On the energy-side, the committee advocates for investment in essential energy infrastructure and access to cost-effective renewable energy resources. With regard to water, the committee works with the San Diego County Water Authority, the City of San Diego Public Utilities Department, the Metropolitan Water District and other water agencies to improve the resiliency of the water system. Priorities of the committee are expanding the use of recycled water and seawater desalination.

The Energy & Water Committee meets the first Thursday of each month from 7:30 to 9:00 a.m. at the Chamber office located at 402 West Broadway, Suite 1000.
