10,000 Acre Solar at Big Dune, Amargosa Valley
According to Greg Helseth, renewable energy guy for Nevada BLM, a Notice of Intent will be out in two weeks to prepare an EIS for Pacific Electric to construct a 10,000 acre photovoltaic solar energy system north and west of Big Dune in the Amargosa Valley, Nevada. It would surround Big Dune with 16 miles of solar panels. It would probably cut off a lot of access. He said it will be officially announced in two weeks. Pacific Electric intends to plant trees around the whole complex to prevent blowing sand from sandblasting the solar panels! No kidding! (No word on how the trees would be watered.)
Funny how the greens want to save the whole planet from global warming but have no problem digging up 16 square miles to do it.
