The Green for Life program provides jurisdictions with free tools and staff training to understand your emissions (carbon footprint) and identify energy waste and further advance the energy efficiency and cost savings of new and existing municipal, commercial and residential properties.

Each of the region’s cities and Indian Tribes has adopted all or parts of the Green for Life programs and policies. Great care has been taken to customize these programs and policies to conform to each jurisdiction’s specific achievements and goals. The region’s residents, business’ and visitors will gain insight and knowledge directly from their local governments as well as directly via this website.

The Coachella Valley Association of Governments (CVAG) received one of the largest awards in the region from Southern California Edison (SCE) and the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) in early 2011 to advance energy efficiency and sustainability.  We are working with member agencies on a uniquely local program to build on our efforts to date and leverage this opportunity for leadership in energy efficiency and sustainability.
