Our First Facility
The first sugarcane-to-ethanol and electricity production facility will be located in a county Specific Plan area and a California Enterprise Zone. CE&P is in the electricity interconnection queue, is well into the permitting process, and expects its initial project to be in commercial operation in 2019, and to be followed by up to four additional facilities. CE&P is already growing sugarcane to be processed by the facility.
Adjacent to the Mesquite Lake Enterprise Zone, the facility will be easily accessible by truck to the southern California and Arizona ethanol markets. The facility is in close proximity to two power lines that are owned and maintained by the Imperial Irrigation District. CE&P will transmit electricity to its power purchaser via an interconnection with one of these power lines.
