Center Tours Southern California Edison Tech Center

Center President Norris McDonald toured Southern California Edison's Customer Technology Application Center (CTAC) and found the facility to be an incredible educational facility. The displays, models, replicas and audio visual presentations are housed in a 51,000 square foot, state-of-the-art facility located just east of Los Angeles in the city of Irwindale. SCE CTAC staff are pictured below with McDonald.

The tour was arranged by Darius Pierce of LAGRANT Communications. McDonald is pictured below with LAGRANT General Manager Keisha N. Brown (center) and Pierce (right) at the LAGRANT office in downtown Los Angeles.

CTAC houses eight technologies centers, three classrooms, a computer lab and a 103 person theater-style conference center that offers customers, architects, engineers and contractors an array of programs and services that can help save energy, money and the environment.
