Consider the California Energy Efficiency Strategic Plan as an Alternative for the Desert Renewable Energy Conservation Plan

We request that a new alternative be considered for the Desert Renewable Energy Conservation Plan (DRECP). The current DRECP includes no alternative that accurately reflects existing California state energy priorities that require rooftop solar and energy efficiency be fully implemented prior to developing largescale, remote solar and wind projects. The California Energy Efficiency Strategic Plan (CEESP) already exists as state law and we request it be fully implemented now. For more background see www.basinandrangewatch.org/DRECP-CEESP-Alternative.html

This is a better conservation alternative to what is available in the Draft Environmental Impact Statement. Now that a few large-scale renewable energy projects have been built, we have seen irreversible impacts to flora and fauna, archeology sites, air quality and the quality of life for local communities. The CEESP alternative would be instrumental in eliminating the need for all of these impacts.
