Developers of a proposed 11,000-seat, $250 million arena that could break ground in the Coachella Valley as soon as this spring are touting new plans for the facility ultimately to be powered with solar energy and have a plan to generate zero waste and be entirely carbon neutral by 2025. 

But Oak View Group — the arena’s developer — stipulates that achieving those goals will require cooperation with the local power utility, something that they say is proving challenging. The Riverside County Planning Commission unanimously voted to approve an array of environmental and zoning changes associated with the arena on Wednesday.

One of the company’s missions is to “operate the most progressive, responsive, sustainable venues in the world.” OGV has a portfolio that includes Climate Pledge Arena in Seattle, which is under construction.
