The Imperial Valley
With its vast natural resources, California's Imperial Valley has nearly 500,000 acres of some of the world's most productive irrigated farmland. Located in the southeastern corner of California, the Imperial Valley's access to San Diego, Los Angeles and the southwestern United States makes it uniquely positioned to develop into the Renewable Energy Capital of the World.
By locating its facilities in the Imperial Valley, CE&P will help transform the economic landscape of the region by creating demand for local goods and services, raising farm income, generating tax revenue and creating jobs with salaries that exceed national averages. For the construction of each facility, CE&P expects to bring substantial economic benefits to the Imperial Valley, and the operation of each plant will provide well-paying jobs. CE&P is working closely with its Imperial Valley partners to develop a plan that fosters environmental respect and sustainable opportunity. Working together, CE&P will help make sugarcane the right renewable resource for the Imperial Valley community.
