Inyo County a future transmission corridor?

Local leaders met Tuesday to discuss transmission corridor planning in Inyo County that could impact renewable energy development in the Owens Valley and other parts of Inyo.
Over the years, the Owens Valley has been targeted for a number of transmission corridors that would transmit solar and wind energy from areas as far north as Oregon and Washington, to reaches as far south as Los Angeles.
County Administrative Officer Kevin Carunchio said the discussion about potential transmission corridor planning is relevant, as recent public meetings about the county’s Renewable Energy General Plan Amendment and the controversial Los Angeles Department of Water and Power Southern Owens Valley Solar Ranch raised many concerns among residents regarding current transmission capabilities, and future plans for the Eastern Sierra.
Inyo County Planning Director Josh Hart gave the board a rundown of some of the transmission planning efforts that are currently underway and could impact the Eastern Sierra.
Those planning efforts have included the West-Wide Energy Corridor, which, if approved, would run through the Owens Valley.
