The Coachella Valley Mosquito and Vector Control District is responsible for reducing the risk of transmittable diseases like West Nile Virus and St. Louis encephalitis over a 2,400 square mile area in Southern California. Because of the public health risks associated with their work, it speaks to solar power’s reliability and RGS Energy’s expertise that the District commissioned a PV system for their headquarters in Indio, CA.
