Renewables Proposed to Fund Salton Sea Restoration at Imperial Valley Renewable Energy Summit

Explore:  Renewable Energy

I recently attended the Imperial Valley Economic Development Corporation’s 7th Annual Imperial Valley Clinton Health Matters Conference Discusses Private Sector Role in Salton Sea Restoration, Including Renewable Energy IndustryRenewable Energy Summit. My colleague, Bob Hargreaves, participated on a Salton Sea panel and proposed development of renewables as a means of financing the remediation and restoration of the Sea, as this The Desert Sun article documents. He recently authored two blog posts on the same subject: Clinton Health Matters Conference… 1/21/14, and Study Estimates Renewable Energy… 1/14/14.

Did you know that Imperial Valley currently exports over 500 mega-watts of renewable energy? With the addition of new renewable energy projects that are under development, the Valley could produce up to 2,500 mega-watts of renewable energy, making it a major contributor in helping California achieve its renewable energy portfolio standards of 33% renewable energy by 2020.
