Balboa Park will be celebrating its Centennial next year. But did you know that Balboa Park is actually three years older than Daylight Saving Time? During Daylight Saving Time, longer days with sunlight mean potential energy savings for you!
Daylight Saving Time Tips
Let the sunshine in. Take advantage of natural daylight to reduce lighting. Dim or turn off lights during the day.
A world of discovery awaits children of all ages at the next Balboa Park Family Day on Sunday, March 16, when nearly two dozen cultural organizations present a wide range of activities that put the fun into STEAM: Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math. Activities take place from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and are free with paid museum admission. Participating museums are also offering free admission to children 12 and under with a paying adult.
Did you know that in 2013, SDG&E supported more than 570 nonprofit organizations that are directly benefitting the local community?
Thanks to your energy-conservation efforts, the average amount of electricity consumed in U.S. homes has declined to levels last seen more than a decade ago. According to a recent San Francisco Chronicle/Associated Press article, home electricity use has declined because of more energy-efficient housing, appliances and gadgets.
Did you know that Balboa Park was an early adopter of light-emitting diodes (LEDs)? In 2008, SDG&E and Balboa Park partnered to retrofit the lighting for the Cabrillo Bridge and El Prado. At the time, it was quite a task to locate and install 4,000 LED lamps that resembled the previous incandescent bulbs.
With more than 350,000 people attending December Nights and limited parking at Balboa Park, we encourage visitors to use the FREE off-site shuttles or take public transportation.
San Diego’s iconic Cabrillo Bridge is getting a much needed upgrade. The bridge, linking Laurel Street to Balboa Park, is receiving improvements that will help protect against earthquake damage. Drivers tend to slow down next to the concrete barrier on the project, so back-ups are expected along SR-163.
