While Palm Springs is an obvious candidate for solar power, the first thing the visitor notes driving into town is its population of wind turbines. Around 2700 wind turbines are found in the valley – powered by the low pressure system that occurs as the heat rising from the desert encounters the cool coastal winds rushing in from the Pacific Ocean. This off-beat film by LA-based animator Joaquin Baldwin was inspired driving back from a trip to Palm Springs – you can see more of his animations here.
