In case you didn’t know, Solar, Wind, Geothermal Projects, are being “Fast Track” by the Obama Administration.
Fast Tracking attempts to minimize the red tape, in order to get the boots on the ground as soon as feasible.
They are OUR Public lands by the way. We should use them to secure our Energy Future while protecting our wonderful Natural Heritage.
Here are the highlights:
BLM> California> California Desert District> Alternative Energy> Fast-Track Projects
Fast-Track Renewable Energy Projects
Ivanpah BrightSource Solar Project
The 400-megwatt project would incorporate seven 459-foot tall power towers and 214,000 heliostats (each holding two flat mirrors).
The project’s power plants would share an administrative complex/construction logistics area on approximately 4,073 acres of public land.
