ECAC Committee

Print

IID’s Energy Consumers Advisory Committee provides advice and recommendations to the IID Board of Directors regarding fiscal, strategic planning, and Board policy matters that affect the Energy Department.

The committee was recently reconstituted and is now comprised of 20 representatives with diverse backgrounds and expertise. In the Imperial Valley, each director is responsible for the selection of two appointees for his or her division—totaling 10 representatives. The Coachella Valley is also represented by 10 members; however, they are nominated by the cities and the county of Riverside. Indio, Coachella and La Quinta are allowed two nominations each, while Palm Desert and Rancho Mirage share a delegate. The unincorporated areas are served by three representatives nominated by the county. After nomination, each representative is then ratified by the IID board.

Created in 1994, the ECAC provides critical advice to the board regarding all aspects of the energy department and its operations. Since the time of its inception, the ECAC has acted in an advisory capacity to the board recommending actions of a variety of topics, including budget needs, capital expenditures and pilot program needs.
