"As the County Supervisor for the district that CPV Sentinel resides in I could not be more supportive of the plant. The plant has proven to be not only great for the local economy but they have proven themselves to be excellent corporate citizens. With San Onofre offline for good, this plant is a literal lifesaver."

- Marion Ashley, Supervisor, Riverside County

"On behalf of the Mayor's Office and the residents of Woodbridge Township, I am writing to express our sincere appreciation for the substantial benefits created by the CPV Woodbridge Energy Center. In addition to the clean, reliable electricity this state-of-the-art facility will generate, which will help drive our economy and further economic expansion, the CPV Woodbridge Energy Center has been a boon unto itself. This project has been the catalyst that has served to reutilize a former brownfield site on the Raritan River that stood vacant for decades. As part of this project, Woodbridge citizens will finally have public access to the river front as we complete the Woodbridge Waterfront Park and Sanctuary."

- John E. McCormac,
Mayor Woodbridge Township

They have provided Thanksgiving and holiday meals for needy families, supported local schools, family support groups and have become an integral part of our community. I recently had the privilege of visiting the plant and was impressed how beautifully done all of the roads were. I was also impressed at the efficiency of the facility and the lack of noise while the plant was operational."

"The CPV Sentinel Plant is providing critical backstop to the extensive renewable energy in the Coachella Valley. It is not always possible to rely solely on renewable energy and this kind of plant is critical, particularly in our region where we have very hot summer months."

- Steve Pougnet, Mayor
Palm Springs

"By providing reliable and affordable back-up power for our region’s green energy resources, CPV Sentinel plays an important role in helping to maximize the desert's renewable energy potential.  The construction of this cutting edge facility also created hundreds of good paying jobs for the region at a time when they were sorely needed.  I have had the opportunity to visit the Sentinel plant and get a tour of its impressive technology.  I am pleased to have helped make this project a reality."

"As a state legislator, I was a principal coauthor of legislation that moved this plant forward and I am very happy to continue my support as a member of the Board of Supervisors for Riverside County where the plant is located. State of the art in clean power generation, this plant is a critical component of providing the regions power needs. It is great that it is operational 3 months ahead of schedule to provide critical power for the summer months in the Coachella Valley."

- John Benoit, Supervisor
Riverside County

"The construction of the Sentinel Power Plant provided many good paying jobs for our members at a difficult time in the economy when our industry was hurting.The relationship between CPV and labor was exceptional in every respect and CPV Sentinel was an exceptional employer.
