SEIA Testimony on S. 2921, the California Desert Protection Act of 2010

Share

 

We cannot fight climate change without clean energy sources like solar. Solar energy is pollution‐free, produces no carbon, and is fueled by an inexhaustible and renewable resource – the sun. Utility‐scale solar power plants will power millions of homes with clean energy as part of a diverse energy portfolio that includes distributed generation, solar water heating and other renewable sources.
 
The solar industry is committed to solving our most pressing energy and environmental challenge in a thoughtful manner. Solar power plants can be developed in a way that balances environmental protection with our energy demands. The Southwest’s plentiful solar resources can be harnessed in a way that safeguards water resources, habitat, and wildlife. Again, thank you for allowing SEIA to submit this testimony. We look forward to working with the Committee to improve this proposed legislation and the process for developing utility‐scale solar power in the United States.
