County supervisors move toward creating renewable energy plan  

Credit:  Posted by Karen Brainard on Sep 26 2013 | www.ramonasentinel.com ~~

San Diego County’s Board of Supervisors voted unanimously Wednesday to take the first step toward creating a comprehensive renewable energy plan for the unincorporated areas of the county.

Supervisors voted to spend up to $300,000 so the county’s Department of Planning & Development Services can form a Renewable Energy Advisory Committee, comprised of renewable energy professionals from the private sector, and thoroughly study solar, wind and other renewable energy technology, trends and issues over the next 14 months.

After getting public input, the department would then bring to the board recommendations that could help the county create legislative strategies, update its existing plans and policies, identify potential incentives and create marketing plans to promote and guide renewable energy in the county.

Supervisor Dianne Jacob, whose District 2 includes Ramona and who recommended the creation of a renewable energy policy in April, said the county needed a plan because its electricity costs were among the highest in the nation and were sparking increasing interest in renewable energy projects.

“I think we do need a blueprint that will help guide us into the future when it comes to renewable energy,” Jacob said. “And, as I stated before, I think the County of San Diego and this board has the opportunity to be a leader.”
