SOLANA BEACH, Calif. — OpTerra Energy Services, an Oakland, California-based energy services company, announced it has opened a new office in San Diego to support the region’s growing sustainability needs in both the private and public sector. The new OpTerra branch will be located at 201 Lomas Santa Fe Drive, Suite 480, in Solana Beach, California.

OpTerra works with private- and public-sector facilities to reduce energy consumption and energy cost, enabling customers to save dollars that can be redirected to address other mission-critical priorities. The company works with customers in K-12, higher education, and local government institutions, as well as commercial and industrial entities in industries such as biotechnology, health care, hospitality, data centers, supermarkets, and more.

OpTerra has already helped advance San Diego’s sustainable energy economy through projects with the San Dieguito Union High School District (SDUHSD) and the city of Solana Beach. A 2 megawatt (MW) solar project was completed at SDUHSD with an anticipated energy savings of over $10 million for the district. OpTerra also reduced annual energy consumption for the city of Solana Beach by upgrading more than 500 streetlights to highly efficient LED lighting, installing a cool roof and a new HVAC system at city hall — saving more than $40,000 in its first year alone.

“San Diego is a world-recognized leader in innovation, clean technologies, and sustainable business practices, which means OpTerra is extremely well poised to do business here," said Jason Anderson, president and CEO of Cleantech San Diego. “We are excited by OpTerra’s commitment to advancing their business within the San Diego region, and believe the company will become a critical player in helping to advance San Diego’s cleantech economy.”

“San Diego is a cutting-edge leader in innovation and sustainability, so naturally, we’re seeing more demand for our services in the region,” said John Mahoney, CEO of OpTerra Energy Services. “We look forward to partnering with customers in San Diego to create safer, greener, and more inviting communities for residents and businesses.”
