Owens Valley Solar Energy Study
The California Energy Commission awarded Inyo County a grant to collect geospatial data, coordinate with tribal governments, local residents, and City of Los Angeles Department of Water and Power, and prepare a study of the Owens Valley and Owens Lake. The County has prepared the Owens Valley Solar Energy Study (OVSES) that includes geo-spatial data and information gathering for topics including: biological resources, visual resource, land use, and historic and cultural resources. Development of the OVSES also included a robust public outreach component.
The Planning Commission is scheduled to receive a presentation regarding the OVSES and provide input and recommendations for the Board of Supervisors’ consideration on January 27, 2016 at 10 a.m. in the Administrative Center in Independence.
