Sustainability Program Looking for LEED Intern to Join the Team

The Balboa Park Cultural Partnership is looking for a university intern to support the Sustainability Program’s LEED initiatives at three Balboa Park multi-tenant buildings.  The Balboa Park LEED intern will assist building tenants to document green purchasing compliance in the Materials and Resource category of the LEED 2009 Existing Building: Operations + Maintenance rating system.

A Great Success in Home Energy Savings

Balboa Park and City of San Diego employees and volunteers came together on Thursday, March 20 for an exclusive energy-savings event.  Residential use LED light bulbs and energy- and water-efficient shower heads were offered at substantial discounts. 

This was a fun and interesting way to learn more about energy efficiency savings and LED technology for your home.
