Celebrating Our History, Focused on the Future

In 1998, Sempra was formed as a merger of two century-old utilities: Pacific Enterprises and Enova Corporation, the parent companies of Southern California Gas Co. and San Diego Gas & Electric. Over the past two decades, Sempra has grown into a diversified global energy infrastructure company. Since its formation, the company has been successful in developing a balanced portfolio of businesses comprised of top-tier utilities and long-term-contracted energy infrastructure assets.

To date, the company has contributed more than $260 million to charitable causes and continues to find innovative ways to best serve more than 40 million consumers worldwide.
