"The tour, sponsored by the Coachella Valley Water District and Renova Solar, will leave from the CVWD office in Palm Desert at 8 a.m. and make stops at the Coachella Valley branch of the All-American Canal and geothermal, algae, biofuel and solar facilities."

CVWD should step aside and let DWA give the tours. CVWD builds it's "monument" off of Water Way in Palm Desert and doesn't put any solar PV on their facility. DWA on the other hand has installed a few MW of solar PV generation over the last 10 years. How pathetic and hypocritical, CVWD will insert themselves into the Green tour, but do nothing to use the technology on new construction to defray the costs of operations which takes ratepayer water rates to pay the electric bill every month as part of the overhead.
