Corporate Sponsor Spotlight: Desert Star Energy Center 
Desert Star Energy Center, more than power generation
Located in Boulder City, San Diego Gas & Electric’s Desert Star Energy Center, safely generates reliable energy for thousands of customers each year. Desert Star Energy Center uses natural gas to generate up to 490 megawatts of electricity – enough to power more than 300,000 homes – that is nearly 20x the population of Boulder City. 

Chamber member, President-Elect of the Boulder City Sunrise Rotary, and Desert Star Energy Center Plant Manager, Kevin Lampman, works with the California Independent System Operator (CAISO) to make sure the plant is generating electricity to meet the energy needs of SDG&E’s customers.

“We take great pride in our role of generating reliable electricity for our customers in Southern California,” said Lampman. “However, the part of my job I enjoy the most is my involvement in my community and the importance SDG&E has placed on supporting a number of great causes right here in Boulder City.”

SDG&E and their employees have a long standing commitment to volunteering in local communities and supporting the efforts of community-based organizations to support safety and emergency preparedness, champion environmental education and awareness, inspire future leaders, promote economic development and aid military families and those in need.

Making true on this commitment, SDG&E recently donated $4,000 to support Boulder City High School’s all-night drug and-alcohol-free graduation party, where Desert Star Energy team members will also be found chaperoning, and presented $1,000 to Emergency Aid of Boulder City. The SDG&E team and their families can also be found at many local events, including working the booth at the Boulder City Chamber of Commerce Spring Jam.
SDG&E and its parent company, Sempra Energy, have been supporting the community since it built its first power plant in the Eldorado Valley in 1999.
