Renewable Energy & Transmission Element
The Renewable Energy and Transmission Element contains the latest knowledge about local geothermal resources, current development technology, and County, State, and Federal policy regarding the exploration, development, and transmission of geothermal energy. The Renewable Energy and Transmission Element is an optional Element of the Imperial County General Plan as permitted by Section 65303 of the California Government Code. The purpose of the Renewable Energy and Transmission Element is to provide a comprehensive document that contains the latest knowledge about the resource, workable development technology, legal requirements, policy (County, State, and Federal), and implementation measures. The Element provides a framework for review and approval of renewable projects in the County.
