La Quinta, Calif. – The Coachella Valley Housing Coalition’s (CVHC) Wolff Waters Place
Apartments in the City of La Quinta, a Leadership in Energy and Environment Design (LEED) Gold
and Silver certified community, is set to receive further energy efficiencies with the installation of
solar photovoltaic panels on its carport system. The system will be installed by Renova Energy
Corp. the largest locally owned and operated commercial and residential solar integrator in the
Coachella Valley.
The 174-kW solar project at Wolff Waters Place is the first system for nonprofit housing developer
CVHC, but one in a series of solar panel system installations CVHC has planned for its housing in
the Coachella Valley.
“Energy efficiency and green design features are vital in our efforts to keep utility and overhead
costs low for our low and very low income residents,” said John Mealey Executive Director of
CVHC, “Solar PV panels at Wolff Waters Place make sense for our developments, for our residents
and for the environment.”
“The Coachella Valley Housing Coalition set out to build an affordable housing development that
truly served the needs of its future occupants,” said MaryAnn Ybarra, Project Manager.
“Incorporating green features ensures affordability without draining precious resources.”
“I applaud the Coachella Valley Housing Coalition for undertaking this project to help provide a
greener future with clean energy, while at the same time, taking advantage of the incentives and
opportunities that exist while saving precious energy dollars,” added Vincent Battaglia, CEO of
Renova. “They are setting an example for the many other non profits which wil inevitably fol ow.”
Renova executives estimate that the use of solar energy at Wolff Waters Place will save the
organization more than $32,000 annually in electricity costs.

and the National Equity Fund, the 218-unit Wolff Waters Place Apartments was completed in
December 2009 to serve the ever-growing housing needs of the City.
