The Partnership recognizes the critical role that clean energy plays in the future of the San Joaquin Valley. The Valley’s air is among the worst in the nation–the creation and deployment of renewable and alternative energy sources are intimately tied to the health of Valley residents and its economy. A quality environment is one of the “three Es” of sustainable growth – prosperous economy, quality environment, and social equity.
