    The Loma Club The new operators of The Loma Club at Liberty Station nine-hole golf course recently debuted new food and cocktail menus, which they describe as “classic country club fare but with upscale twists.” New dishes include French toast sticks stuffed with strawberry jam and cream cheese; chickpea nachos with Buffalo-style sauce; cheesesteak potato skins, and more. Salads, burgers, and club sandwiches are also available. Visitors can end their visit on a sweet note with an order of powdered sugar donut holes named “bucket of balls.” The revised cocktail list includes “On the Green,” which combines You & Yours dry gin with elderflower, cucumber, and lime. There’s also a “Jungle Birdie” made with pineapple rum and Campari. 2960 Truxtun Road, 619-222-4653, thelomaclub.com. Newport Pizza and Ale House In the wake of Newport Pizza and Ale House (5050 Newport Ave.), which closed about a month ago after operating for 36 years, the establishment’s pizza ovens have landed in a back area of OB Brewery at 5041 Newport Ave. Both businesses are owned by Mike Tajran, who wasn’t available to answer whether he will indeed resume his pizza operation at the nearby brewhouse. But a former employee from Newport Pizza, who requested anonymity, said there’s also a possibility Tajran will look for a new pizzeria location. Stand by for updates. Seven Seas Craft Beer & Food Festival The annual Seven Seas Craft Beer & Food Festival at SeaWorld gets underway on March 7 and continues for nine consecutive weekends through May 3. The event spotlights an array of international cuisines and 150 beer options of every style from nearly 30 breweries. It also features live entertainment across three stages. New to this year’s list of represented countries are Germany, Spain, Argentina, and China. Among the dishes offered from some of those areas are bratwurst, homemade pretzels, and pork belly bao buns. In total, there are 45 food items in the lineup, served from 11 different themed areas throughout the park. Assorted wines and specialty drinks are also in the offing. Access to the festival requires regular park admission, after which food and drink samples can be purchased a la carte ($5 to $7.50 per food sample) as well as through 10-item and 15-item punch cards. They cost $52 and $67 respectively. In addition, SeaWorld’s “Waterfront” area will be utilized to afford patrons additional seating for eating and drinking while enjoying views of the bay. 500 SeaWorld Drive, 619-222-4732, seaworldsandiego.com. Safi Mediterranean Grill A taste of the Middle East awaits in Pacific Beach at the new Safi Mediterranean Grill. The fast-casual eatery opened recently to an affordable menu of sprightly salads, house-made hummus, samosas, gyros, shawarma, and more. Salads, pasta, and pizzas also comprise the menu. Though quaint in size, the establishment stands out with its retro-style booths, light wall colors and bright-red trim. In-house delivery service is available. 4614 Mission Blvd. Taco Surf With an impending change of ownership coming sometime in March at Taco Surf Pacific Beach, existing proprietor Cindy McLarty tells us the buyers, Matt and Melanie Gilmore, have committed to keeping everything intact once escrow is completed. “They want customers who come in to not even notice we’ve changed hands,” said McLarty while pointing out there’s talk about adding some vegan items to the menu. “But that’s it,” she emphasized. “The food and interior will remain exactly the same.” 4657 Mission Blvd., 858-272-3877. Wood Yu An impressively designed breakfast-lunch restaurant that combines Baja and Asian influences has opened in the Torrey Pines area. Named Wood Yu, it is one of the latest ventures involving celebrity chef Brian Malarkey of Puffer Malarkey Collective. The morning menu reveals standard-American items like acai bowls and breakfast wraps. The lunch list, however, delves into such dishes guacamole with shoyu; al pastor banh mi sandwiches, shaking beef with salsa verde, and more. Beer, wine, and cocktails are also available. The indoor-outdoor space previously served partly as an office lobby. It now incorporates lush greenery, drop lighting, and a large Asian-landscape mural. 10578 Science Center Drive, 858-812-5558, woodyu.com. Smallgoods Cheese Shop & Cafe Cheese mongers Jenny and Mike Eastwood have made the leap from the San Diego’s farmers market scene to a new retail outlet in La Jolla. Their venture, Smallgoods Cheese Shop & Cafe, upholds a tradition of selling select cheeses and cured meats from American producers, just as they still do at the weekend farmers markets in La Jolla, Little Italy, and Hillcrest. “I can extend my cheese selection at the cafe much more than I can at the farmers markets,” said Jenny. “We have about 20 different kinds here as opposed to our market selection of about six cheeses.” The cafe component also allows for coffee drinks as well as breakfast and lunch dishes using ingredients sourced from the outdoor markets. 7524 La Jolla Blvd., 858-886-7217, smallgoodsusa.com. Catania Fresh off earning a listing in the 2019 Michelin Guide, the coastal Italian-style eatery in La Jolla known as Catania, will celebrate its fifth anniversary on March 17. In doing so, it will present a multi-course family-style meal that day for $49 per person. In addition, the restaurant is offering a “best hits” pasta tasting for $35, which includes five different pastas. 7863 Girard Ave., 858-551-5105, cataniasd.com.

    You may live an additional 24 hours this Saturday, Feb. 29 due to the leap year, but will you live it up? What you would do if you only had one more day left? Given it’s a weekend, and you’re likely not working your typical 9 to 5 gig, possibilities for things to do in San Diego, and indeed all of Southern California, are limitless. Here are just a few suggestions for things to do, in and around San Diego, on your extra 24 hours, whether that be trying out something new, or taking a day trip elsewhere within a short drive. • Try kitesurfing. If you would like to feel the sensation of flight, water walking abilities and a superhero complex, take kitesurfing lesson from Jeff Raney, who is based out of Fiesta Island. Kitesurfing takes desire, commitment and time flying the kites. The more time you spend flying the kites, the better your kite control will be in the water and progress with your board skills. On average, about 8-10 hours of lessons needed before you can safely get on your own. About the first four hours are all land lessons so you will most likely not be touching the water on the first day. Call 760-840-0028 to set up some lessons. • Yoga by the ocean: Come practice yoga by the Pacific Ocean in a free, donation-based class held every Saturday and Sunday from 10 to 11:30 a.m. at the end of Law Street in PB. This is a challenging, all-levels class that will leave you feeling completely alive and invigorated, led by local instructor Steve Hubbard (aka Namasteve). Hubbard started out in yoga years ago to improve his volleyball game. “Very soon, I discovered that it provided way more than a better jump serves,” he said. “The overall feelings of physical vitality, emotional equanimity, and mental clarity were astounding.” Hubbard describes yoga as “a tool in a journey toward personal growth.” “My intention in teaching is to encourage students to discover their personal greatness,” said Hubbard.  “We’re powerful beyond belief and yoga has a way of helping us remember that. The classes I lead are physically powerful, yet introspective and meditative. I encourage students to listen to their inner intelligence and to honor themselves.” • Whale watching: There are plenty of options for a whale watching trip out of San Diego and February is prime time for seeing gray whales off the coast. Just head down to Quivira Road in Mission Bay where they are several places offering cruises for whale and dolphin watching. Sometimes the smaller operations – such as the six-passenger Gone Whale Watching boat – offer a more exciting and intimate experience than the larger cruises. • Shop at the leap day bar yard sale. Society PB on Garnet Avenue will be the host of a bar yard sale starting at 2 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 29. Visitors can buy, sell, and enjoy drinks at the community yard sale. • Take a taco tour: Take a ride to visit some of San Diego's most delicious taco locations. Taco Tour SD departs from Seaport Village and takes you on a guided historical lunch or sunset tours through Barrio Logan, Point Loma, Ocean Beach, and Mission Beach while indulging in the best tacos, craft beers, and libations that America’s Finest City has to offer. Visit tacotoursd.com for more information.ß • Hike Bike Kayak Adventure Tours: Owned by native La Jollans Michael and Sharon Luscomb, HBK is exactly what their name implies, an adventure, and a local history lesson, on La Jolla coastal geography and ocean wildlife. “Our tours run 90 minutes to two hours,” said Michael Luscomb noting he and his wife have run their family-owned and operated La Jolla Shores business for 25 years. “Our tours start at 9 a.m. and run every hour on the hour.” Tour guides, who are lifeguard certified, are well versed in La Jolla’s wildlife, and place a heavy emphasis on educating guests about the ecology and conservation of native species they’ll encounter on their guided tours of the La Jolla Ecological Reserve. The reserve is home to California Sea Lions, Harbor Seals, Garibaldi fish, Brandt’s Cormorant, Brown Pelicans, Leopard Sharks, and dolphins, among others. La Jolla Kayak also rents an array of beach equipment including sun umbrellas, masks, snorkels, wetsuits and boogie boards. “We explore the seven caves of La Jolla and discuss the history of La Jolla,” said Luscomb. “Our kayaks are extremely user-friendly and are very stable.” Call 858-551-9510 for more information. • Visit Anza-Borrego Desert State Park and check out the amazing sculptures at Borrego Springs. There are more than130 steel-welded sculptures created by 'Perris Jurassic Park' owner/artist/welder Ricardo Breceda at Galleta Meadows, including a 350-foot-long serpent, a scorpion and a huge T. rex. After taking photos of the sculptures, roam the 100 miles of hiking trails like The Slot or Hellhole Canyon to Maidenhair Falls. For more information, visit parks.ca.gov. • Visit Laguna Beach. Right up I-5 in Orange County is the artist colony of Laguna Beach. The city’s topography is unique to other California coastal cities with its seven miles of coves and beaches where visitors can explore sea caves, tide pools, ocean side bluffs, natural tide pools and of course, sandy beaches, all within city limits. Laguna also boasts the most beachfront lodging options in California, making it an ideal spot for a weekend getaway. • Visit both sides of the border wall: On the U.S. side, head to Border Field State Park and take an easy hike down the beach to check out the wall as it extends into the Pacific Ocean. Be on the lookout for horses and what they leave behind. On the Mexico side, cross the border at San Ysidro and head west to Playas de Tijuana. At the Monumental Plaza de Toros you will be in the shadow of the bull ring, the lighthouse, and the colorfully painted border wall. Stroll the Malecon that’s filled with vendors selling churros, elotes and Tostilocos. • Hiking just might be Southern Californians’ official pass time. There are dozens of options – from the Potato Chip Rock in Poway to Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve to Tecolote Canyon Trail right outside PB to Annie’s Slot Canyon near Solana Beach. Of course, one of the most popular hikes is Cowles Mountain in Mission Trails Regional Park – the highest point of the City of San Diego. • Climb California Tower: Visitors are once again able to tour the California Tower, one of San Diego’s most iconic historic landmarks. Make the climb on a 40-minute guided tour highlighting the origins of Balboa Park and the histories of some of the many diverse communities that call San Diego home. All tours culminate in breathtaking 360-degree views of San Diego from the tower’s eighth-floor viewing deck – from the Pacific Ocean in the west to the Cuyamaca Mountains in the east, and beyond. • Temecula wine tours: Enjoy breathtaking scenery and award-winning wineries on a tour in the wine country of Temecula Valley, an hour or so drive from San Diego. Experienced chauffeurs lead guests on an exciting limo bus ride for the day. Wine tour packages, like that offered by Temecula Wine Tours, take all the guesswork out of planning to ensure no details are left out. Visit temeculawinetours.net for more information. • Ride in a hot air balloon. Sip champagne as you travel over some of the most exclusive golf courses including Torrey Pines and through a maze of coastal canyons. Compass Balloons private hot air balloon rides offer 360-degree views of the Del Mar coastline and can be a fun trip for that special occasion. Hot air balloon flights of up to eight people are available to ensure a quality of flight that is unmatched. Visit compassballoons.com for more information. • Go skydiving. GoJump Oceanside, located at Oceanside Municipal Airport, offers thrilling jumps from 13,000 feet out of a colorful, fast-climbing PAC 750XL jump plane that was designed for skydiving. Visit gojump-oceanside.com for more information. • Finish your extra day with a sunset. From La Jolla to Point Loma, the coast offers amazing views of sunsets. But if you want one of the best experiences, check out Sunset Cliffs. A PERFECT DAY ALONG WITH COAST San Diego influencer Celeste Hernholm, who posts weekend guides on Instagram @Seldomlystill, offers her take on how to best enjoy leap day at the beach. "Because a leap year only comes around every four years, Feb. 29 is the perfect day to hang out with a friend you haven't seen in a while. Start with a hot beverage from Bird Rock Coffee Roasters and a freshly baked English muffin at Wayfarer Bread & Pastry. Then go for a leisurely stroll along the boardwalk in Mission Beach. Grab an early dinner and catch the sunset at Tower 23's restaurant, JRDN, in Pacific Beach, and finish your ‘San Diego Riviera’ day with a wine tasting at 3rd Corner Wine Shop & Bistro in Ocean Beach." FEELING COMFORTABLE – AND SEXY – IN YOUR OWN SKIN Luci Lampe, an Ocean Beach-based mom of four, author of “Achieving Sexy,” songwriter/model, and founder of the Sexy Mama Movement, shares her thoughts on trying something new on leap day. “Many of us wish we had more hours in a day, and most have an idea of what we’d do with those extra hours. Lucky for us, every leap year we get a whole extra 24 hours. So how can we take advantage of the extra hours in 2020? Personally, I like to spend time going on new adventures and trying things I’ve been curious about, but maybe a little scared to do. One of those things was visiting Blacks Beach with my husband on his birthday last year, shedding our clothes in favor of our birthday suits. Who doesn’t want to spend their birthday naked with their lover, right? At first, I thought it would be weird being naked in front of other people. To my surprise, it felt so natural and very freeing! Our tan lines gave us away as newbies, but the regulars were so surprised at how comfortable we both were walking around, exploring the beach, even making friends (yes, naked friends. It wasn’t so awkward after all!). People there overall seem very accepting of themselves and their bodies, regardless of their shape or size. I love that. Since then, it’s been our favorite beach to visit when we have some time to get away for a couple of hours. The hike down and up is definitely a good little warm-up, so be prepared for that; and bring lots of water and snacks. It may be a bit nipp(l)y out on Feb. 29, but even if you wait till it’s warmer, I hope you give it a try! WHY IS THERE A LEAP YEAR EVERY FOUR YEARS? The reason we have leap year, according to WorldTimeServer.com, is that “the calendar is designed to concur with the Earth’s revolutions around the sun. For example, it takes the planet about 365.242189 days – 365 days, 5 hours, 48 minutes, and 45 seconds – to circle one time around the sun. Therefore, we have 365 days in the calendar.” The full rotation is called a tropical year, also known as a solar year, astronomical year, or an equinoctial year. However, those extra hours, minutes, and seconds – the ones that are part of the decimal at the end of the tropical year – add up over time. If we didn’t include a leap day every four years, we would lose nearly six hours each year. This would “add up to a total of 24 days in a span of 100 years.” Over time, the calendar wouldn’t match up and things would certainly be off, thus we have a leap year.

    Cured from diabetes with Herbal medicine

    My husband and I recently sold a home and loan is paid off. We looked at our credit reports before getting preapproved to start looking for another home. We found that the payment for our home loan had been reported late for 24 consecutive months. It looks like a partial payment was applied to the principal on the loan instead of the payment amount due and through the payment off. I contacted the loan officer, due to our closeness he told me secretly that the quickest way to get it cleared up was to looked for a credit expert I told him I don't know anyone who could help me out then he introduced me to Tom who's a former Experian worker. I contact him via email at (tom.lawrence114 at g mail com) I explained everything to him and he assure me he will help me get my credit fixed after we bot got an agreement, to my greatest surprised every debt on our credit was marked as paid, the 24 consecutive late payment had been corrected to on time payment. We applied for a home and we were approved. My question is If the loan officer didn't confide to us we wouldn't have got our credit Fixed which I'm pretty sure many Americans are currently in this situation

    When it comes to pleasing a palate, nothing quite fulfills like pizza. And there are a plethora of Peninsula pizzerias serving up every imaginable style of pie from New York-style thin to Chicago-inspired deep-dish pizza, and everything in between.  The roots of pizza go back to ancient times, flatbreads and the Romans. But legend has it that Italian King Umberto I and Queen Margherita, who visited Naples, Italy in 1889, were the first members of Italian royalty to put the dish on the map. They asked for a pizza, and the one made for them contained fresh tomatoes, mozzarella cheese, and basil. That pizza is still known as Pizza Margherita today. Pizza first appeared in the United States with the arrival of Italian immigrants in the late 19th century. It was popular among large Italian populations in New York City, Chicago, Philadelphia, Trenton and Saint Louis. Before the 1940s, pizza consumption was limited mostly to Italian immigrants and their descendants. However, following World War II, veterans introduced to Italy’s native cuisine proved a ready market for pizza. The Chicago-style deep-dish pizza was invented in 1943 by Chicago entrepreneurs Ike Sewell and Ric Riccardo. The U.S. market really took off with the rise of chains like Domino’s, Pizza Hut and Papa John’s during the ’60s. San Diego and the Peninsula, like its craft brews, have a selection of pizzerias to rival anywhere else. Here are a few spots to choose from:   OCEAN BEACH   Mr. Moto Pizza Owner Gibran Fernandez started out working at Pizza on Pearl in La Jolla, eventually purchasing a stake in the eatery, which led to his first restaurant in 2015 in Pacific Beach. Soon, he spread to North Park, Point Loma and, most recently, Ocean Beach. According to Fernandez, what makes his pies truly special are “our unique pairings and toppings and our ricotta-stuffed crust.” Variety is important too. “We change it up with a new pizza of the month where we really innovate by the slice offering gourmet options with everything made in-house,” said Fernandez. Mr. Moto is known especially for use of premium cheeses, fresh gourmet ingredients and its perfectly kneaded, hand-tossed dough. “The craft in our dough, and our consistency, really stands out,” noted Fernandez. “We offer drizzles with our toppings like rosemary, olive oil, sweet balsamic glaze, truffle, and garlic knots being the most popular and to die for.” Branding is also big for Fernandez, who offers “funky videos” on Instagram to advertise his product. “It’s just a story with cartoons of one of my locations,” he said of his videos noting Mr. Moto’s trademark mustache is on everything in his pizzerias “including our door handles.” 1929 Cable St. Hours: Mondays-Wednesdays 11 a.m.-9 p.m.; Thursdays-Sundays 11 a.m.-10 p.m. 619-981-9777.   Ulivo The name of this OB eatery, next to Olive Tree Marketplace, means Olive Tree in Italian. It is a casual and cozy neighborhood restaurant owned by the Olive Tree Marketplace. The pizzeria is known for its simple, fresh ingredients that are prepared to order to create authentic regional and seasonal specialties with a variety of flavors.  The menu offers a selection of salads, pasta, grilled meat, and seafood entrees, as well as artisanal pizzas, which blend the rustic flavors of Italian cuisine with locally sourced ingredients. Ulivo believes pizza doesn’t need frills. “Ulivo Restaurant gets the basic elements of a good pizza right,” claims Ulivo’s website at ulivorestaurant.com. The dough is made fresh daily, and the hand-tossed pies are not too thin, and not too think. The crust is also never soggy.  Ulivo uses grande mozzarella cheese of the highest quality and is regarded as one of the best in the industry. The meat and veggie toppings are always fresh and plentiful. There are six specialty pizzas offered on the menu. Patrons can also build their own pie. Meat lovers can try the Colosseum. The Prosciutto and Pear pie is also a favorite topped with fresh arugula and balsamic glaze. Any pizza can also be made on Ulivo’s delicious gluten-free crust. 1776 Sunset Cliffs Blvd. Hours: 4:30-9:30 p.m. seven days a week. 619-224-2227.   Pizza Port This popular OB eatery offering pizzas galore has an interesting history. In March 1987, siblings Gina and Vince Marsaglia, both in their 20s, bought a struggling pizza place in Solana Beach. Vince took advantage of free space in the restaurant’s storage area to dabble with home brewing. The hobby took off, and Vince and Gina subsequently decided to go into the brewpub business.  Pizza Port in the heart of OB offered its first craft-brewed beers to patrons in 1992, and quickly gained a reputation in San Diego’s growing craft beer scene. So far, the Pizza Port locations collectively have won over 91 medals/awards from the Great American Beer Festival. Pizza Port location No. 4 opened in 2010 in Ocean Beach. The menu is extensive featuring original, anti-wimpy, create-your-own pizzas as well as a pizza of the month choice. Also on the menu are salads and a variety of munchies, appetizers, and drinks. “While we don’t know entirely what’s next for us, we want to continue to brew great beer, make great pizzas, and make new friends,” said the pizzeria on its website. “Through all the growth and changes we have seen over the past 30 years, what continues to drive our passion and our mantra still rings true, so cheers to that.” 1956 Bacon St. Hours: 11 a.m.-11 p.m. daily. 619-224-4700. Newport Pizza & Ale House The long time pizza place on Newport Avenue was the go-to spot for residents seeking New York-style slices and plenty of craft beer. But, unfortunately for thin-crust fans, the venerable pizza shop closed its doors on Feb. 9. Plans are for it moving across the street in the Jungle Java property to create a pizza and beer garden while sharing space with the coffee shop. LIBERTY STATION   Officine Buona Forchetta If your tastes in pizza run toward authentic Italian, then Officine Buona Forchetta is your place. This eatery blends award-winning Neapolitan-style pies and Northern Italian upscale entrees in a family-friendly, approachable space.  Located in the heart of Liberty Station, the 2,600-square-foot restaurant boasts two patios, offering families their very own seating complete with playground and secure space to romp for kids while parents enjoy their meals.  Inside, two gilded ovens churn out classic creations, while the main kitchen serves up chef-driven pasta and entree dishes. Owner Matteo Cattaneo brought the Italian warehouse-style eatery to life with industrial seating, hand-drawn murals, and a vintage Fiat repurposed into a table for two. “We have Neapolitan pizza, Naples-style,” said Officine’s general manager Romina Licapa, adding, “Everything is imported from Italy. The mozzarella we use is homemade from an Italian recipe. Of course, the tomato sauce and mozzarella are both homemade.” Licapa said Officine’s pizzas are distinguished by their bigger borders and crusts. “It’s not crunchy,” she said of their pies noting, “We have plenty of choices. One of our most popular is the Sofia, with artichokes, mushrooms, and bruschetta toasted Italian bread drenched in olive oil.” 2865 Sims Road Hours: Mondays-Thursdays 11:30 a.m.-9:30 p.m., Fridays and Saturdays 11:30 a.m.-10:30 p.m., Sundays 11:30 a.m.- 9 p.m. 619-548-5770.   Landini’s Pizzeria Landini’s Pizzeria with locations in both Liberty Station and Little Italy bills itself as “best pizza by the slice.” “We are the first and only New York-style “pizza by the slice” in the neighborhood since 2009,” claims the pizzeria’s website.  Located in Liberty Public Market’s Mess Hall, Landini’s has a huge selection of pie options with ingredients including pepperoni, ham, meatballs, black olives, cheese, eggplant, jalapenos, pineapple, zucchini, red peppers, ricotta, green bell peppers, fresh mushrooms, sun-dried tomatoes, Italian sausage, pesto, fresh garlic, anchovies, red onions, artichoke, chicken, bacon, fresh spinach, and fresh tomatoes. Landini’s also offers up warm Panini layered with imported meats and cheeses, Florentine inspired pasta and a fine selection of beers and wines. 2820 Historic Decatur Road. Hours: 11 a.m.-8 p.m. 619-310-5380.   POINT LOMA Alfredo’s Pizzeria If you like your pies handmade and Italian style, you’ll love Alfredo’s Pizzeria in the heart of Point Loma. “Freshness is important and everything is handmade,” said owner Alfredo Mata, who made pizzas in Italy for five years before moving to the States where he’s worked 15 years in the pizza industry. “We do have vegan and gluten-free options.” Mata said thin is the preferred style at his pizzeria, but he can make pizzas to order. “We can even make a pizza with a Sicilian-style thick crust,” he said. The menu features Margherita, meat lover’s, cheese and Alfredo’s combo pizzas, as well as Buffalo wings, salad, calzones, Strombolis and rolls, hot and cold subs, pasta dishes, desserts, appetizers, and soft drinks. 3022 Cañon St. Hours: Mondays-Thursdays 11 a.m. -10:45 p.m., Fridays and Saturdays 11 a.m.-11:45 p.m., Sundays 11 a.m.-10:45 p.m. 619-226-782   Old Venice This charming bistro offers Italian-Mediterranean cuisine and live music indoors in a garden patio setting.  As its name implies, Old Venice is old school, and has been family owned and operated for 40 years.

    Point Loma Library being retrofitted to attain zero net energy

    Point Loma/Hervey is among three City libraries about to be refitted to achieve zero net energy.  ZNE is a term describing buildings, homes — even communities — that generate as much renewable energy onsite as they use annually. California law now calls for 50% of existing commercial buildings to be retrofitted to ZNE by 2030. “The Point Loma/Hervey Library will remain open throughout the zero net energy renovation process, although patrons may notice work going on in different parts of the building,” said Christine Gonzalez, branch manager, Point Loma/Hervey Branch Library. “As one of the first City buildings to be converted to ZNE, we’re excited to be a model for sustainability and the move toward 100% renewable energy.” The other two libraries in the ZNE rollout are Serra Mesa-Kearny Mesa Library and Valencia Park/Malcolm X Library.  All three libraries already have solar photovoltaic systems to generate energy. Converting to ZNE will require the installation of additional technologies including LED lights and new lighting sensors; heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) control devices; building automation systems; and energy-monitoring equipment. “The City of San Diego is working to transform our municipal building stock to drastically reduce energy consumption, energy costs, and greenhouse gas emissions,” said City chief sustainability officer Cody Hooven. “These ZNE library projects are proving that it can be done and will serve as an example for future deep energy retrofits of City facilities. We’re excited to bring clean energy resources to these communities and pave the way for the City’s clean energy future one building at a time.” The start of the retrofitting of Point Loma/Hervey is set to begin at the end of February.  Shannon Sales, an associate City engineer on its sustainability team, explained why libraries were chosen for the ZNE project. “We wanted a place where people go that would be a good test case,” said Sales, noting libraries are designated “cool zones” where the public can take refuge in especially hot times. “We also wanted a place where its solar panels are visible, so the community can see that steps are being taken to achieve zero net energy making the buildings more efficient.” Amplifying the definition of net-zero energy, Sales said those buildings “must produce more energy annually than they consume. We figure that Point Loma Library annually produces the energy of 35 homes per annum.” Once ZNE retrofitting is complete, the Center for Sustainable Energy will begin monitoring energy usage to determine if the buildings will achieve ZNE, or if additional improvements are required. Sales said there will be an “interactive dashboard display” in Point Loma/Hervey Library so people can see how much energy is actually being consumed adding, “We can adjust and tweak the settings to make it run as efficiently as possible. “This program is a pilot right now, but it can be replicated citywide in other retrofitted buildings.” The project is being funded by a grant from the California Energy Commission in cooperation with SDG&E.  The ZNE program is part of the City’s Climate Action Plan, approved in 2015, which calls for eliminating half of all greenhouse gas emissions in the city and aims for all electricity to be from renewable sources by 2035.  Recently, Mayor Kevin Faulconer released the 2019 Climate Action Plan Annual Report, which shows the City is ahead of schedule in meeting its clean-air goal.
