Gallery: The Frontier Project Showcases Sustainable Technologies

 
An eco-friendly kitchen features green finishes like flooring, cabinets and counter tops as well as energy-efficient appliances.

The Cucamonga Valley Water District (CVWD) spearheads the Frontier Project as a community service initiative that educates customers on green technology and resource conservation awareness. Located to the southwest of the water district’s headquarters, the project actually serves as a wind shade by blocking the prevailing winds.

Inside the 14,000 square-foot demonstration building are examples of numerous sustainable building technologies and strategies. Tours are open to the public every weekday from 9 am to 3 pm, while kiosks provide more information on the eco-friendly kitchen and living room, green roof, solar panel array, and the native and waterless garden area. There is also an exhibition space for special events and demonstrations.
