Mooney Planning is pleased to announce the completion of the County of Imperial Draft Renewable Energy Element and Ordinance and the associated Draft Program Environmental Impact Report. These documents should be released for public review in early January. Both the General Plan Renewable Energy Element and associated implementing Ordinances are the result of over a years study and will serve as implementing programs for the Desert Renewable Energy Conservation Plan. The Element and Ordinance are recommending a series of goals and objectives to sight new large scale renewable energy projects in the Imperial Valley while protecting sensitive natural and cultural resources. The effort was funded with a grant from the California Energy Commission.
