Department of Interior and State of California Release Draft Desert Renewable Energy Conservation Plan for Public Review
Interior Secretary Sally Jewell and Secretary of the California Natural Resources Agency John Laird on Tuesday, September 23, released an innovative landscape-level draft renewable energy and conservation plan covering more than 22 million acres in the California desert, marking a major milestone in federal and state efforts to cut carbon pollution, create jobs, develop clean domestic energy and conserve and protect ecological and cultural resources.
The draft Desert Renewable Energy Conservation Plan or DRECP is a landscape-scale blueprint that is the result of an extensive public participation process, which included collaboration among the Bureau of Land Management, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, California Energy Commission and California Department of Fish and Wildlife and other stakeholders.
