County of Imperial Geothermal/Alternative Energy and Transmission Element Update, County of Imperial, California.

Project Director for the 2007 update to this optional general plan element into the Geothermal/Alternative Energy Transmission Element.  This element was updated to include significant changes created by proposals to produce and transmit energy from alternative energy sources including solar, wind and agricultural byproducts.  Innovative concepts such as the coordination of major transportation and energy transmission corridors within the urbanizing areas of the county as well as the concentration of energy intensive land uses adjacent to the energy producing sites were proposed in the form of Energy Parks.  In addition, the previously outdated mapping of the location and capacity of existing and proposed transmission corridors was updated.
