The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) has announced a public meeting to discuss concepts for building large scale solar power generation facilities in the Eastern Sierra. The meeting will be held in Bishop on Monday, January 11, at 7 pm at the United Methodist Church.
The Committee has been tracking this concept very closely as it has a number of major implications for the future management of the city’s lands and water resources throughout the Eastern Sierra.
I’ll be attending the Eastern Sierra Land Trust (ESLT) open house Thursday January 7 from 4-6pm in advance of the LADWP presentation and urge anyone interested to do so as well. It will be a good opportunity to share information and ideas. The details of the ESLT event are available here.
Pieces of the proposal have been reported on here:
