Cleantech San Diego works closely with the Imperial Valley to advance the region’s renewable energy industry and create jobs. With its vast natural resources and key location, the Imperial Valley is uniquely positioned to develop those resources while also helping the state and entire southwest meet the demand for renewable energy. Some of the region’s most promising opportunities for renewable energy sources include geothermal, solar, and biofuels.
Home to over 360 days of annual sunshine and large amounts of private and public lands available for development, Imperial County will soon see the creation of many new solar energy generation projects, including a number of utility-scale solar generators in development. Additionally, the Imperial Valley’s abundant agricultural resources combined with a year-round growing season make the area prime for biofuel production.
