Mayor Jerry Sanders today announced the official formation of CleanTECH San Diego, a non-profit trade association that will foster and build an energy and environmental technology cluster in the greater San Diego region. The organization will be incubated at CONNECT, San Diego's globally recognized technology and business accelerator.

The Mayor said, "CleanTECH San Diego will nurture and accelerate the growth of companies with environmentally friendly technologies and foster sustainable development and green enterprises. That will allow San Diego to reduce our dependence on foreign oil, combat the effects of global warming and create cleaner, safer workplaces and living environments."

Interim Chairman of CleanTECH San Diego, Duane Roth, said, "CONNECT's commitment to creating and sustaining the growth of the region's innovative technology-based businesses makes the founding of this association in San Diego a necessity. CleanTECH San Diego will identify the key challenges facing emerging renewable energy businesses in the San Diego region and pursue effective solutions." Roth is CEO of CONNECT.

David Saltman, CEO of Open Energy, adds, "As a representative of an environmental company headquartered here, I am honored to join the CleanTECH Board of Directors, and to support its agenda. San Diego is one of the most beautiful and biologically diverse regions in the world, with internationally recognized biotech and IT companies, renowned universities and research institutions, and progressive communities that can work together to generate jobs and protect the environment. Clean tech is here to stay, and San Diego can lead the way."

The launch announcement for CleanTECH San Diego will be made at William Lyon Home's "Green Community" in Clairemont Mesa, San Diego on Thursday, June 28. The community was inspired by the city's Sustainable Building Policy Expedite Program and features Open Energy's SolarSave(R) photovoltaic tiles on all 77 units. The tiles convert sunlight directly into electricity and deliver about 50% of the power requirements of the development. Other features include tankless water heaters and more efficient heating and ventilation systems.
