Desert View Power
Desert View Power (DVP) is a net 45-megawatt woody biomass electrical generation facility located approximately 40 miles east of Palm Springs in Riverside County California and is located on the Cabazon Band of Mission Indians Native American Reservation.
The plant has been consistently providing renewable energy to Southern California since 1992. Each year DVP consumes between 360,000 and 390,000 tons of woody biomass diverted from regional landfills or open burning. DVP converts that material into electricity, providing more than 325,000 megawatt-hours (MWh) annually, or enough to power more than 49,000 homes for a year.
