About the Alumni Association

About Us


The SDG&E Alumni Association was established in 1942 by Hance H. Cleland as the "SDG&E Old Timers" in order to promote, renew and continue the friendships and fellowships made during employment at San Diego Gas & Electric Company;  recall and perpetuate the facts, traditions and memories attaching to the development of the gas and electric industry in San Diego and Orange Counties, California.

Today as the SDG&E Alumni Association, a registered non-profit 501(c)(7) organization, we remain committed to the original goals and objectives of the founders of the original organization so many years ago.
