Renewable Energy Experts Tour Imperial Valley Hot Spots

On the Bus
Experts from the renewable energy industry were given a tour of Imperial Valley renewable energy sites today as part of the Imperial Valley Renewable Energy Summit & Expo.

Among the highlights of the bus-trip was the Hudson Ranch I geothermal power plant, online since noon last Friday, and the Simbol Materials site next door that will extract Lithium and other valuable metals from geothermal brine.
