Energy Public Benefit Program Moves Forward

By Mario Conde

The County Board of Supervisors will move forward with the formation of Renewable Energy Public Benefit Agreement ad hoc committee.

The Board of Supervisors adopted a resolution establishing guidelines for the Public Benefit Program for use with solar power plants in Imperial County. The board gave direction to create Restricted Accounts for the purpose of depositing funds generated from the Program, and on the formation of an Ad hoc advisory committee for the Agricultural and Community Benefit Programs. The Board directed county staff to bring those items back to the Board at a later time.
