Created in 1994, the ECAC provides critical advice and recommendations to the IID Board of Directors regarding all aspects of the Energy Department and its operations, including budget needs, capital expenditures and pilot program needs, strategic planning, and Board policy matters that affect the Energy Department.
The Coachella Valley is represented by 10 members nominated by the Cities and the County of Riverside, serving a 4-year term beginning January 1 and ending December 31. The Cities of Indio, Coachella, and La Quinta each nominate two members; while the Cities of Palm Desert and Rancho Mirage share a member. The unincorporated areas are served by three members nominated by the County of Riverside. The IID Board of Directors ratifies each nominated member.
