San Diego Gas & Electric broke its own record last week for production of renewable electricity.
The company says it produced 1,042 MW on its power grid Aug. 19, the most SDG&E has ever produced in a single day.
Company spokeswoman Stephanie Donovan told KPBS that SDG&E produces about 900 to 1,000 MW of renewable energy any given day, though weather conditions can affect production.
Scott Drury, SDG&E chief energy supply officer, attributes the new record to sunshine and strong winds.
California set a statewide renewable electricity record on the same day, generating 6,341 MW about an hour after SDG&E’s peak, according to the California Independent System Operator.
