  • Local residents recently filed comments with the California Energy Commission calling for distributed generation and alternative power-transmission ideas.
    The comments were prepared for a Tuesday workshop about renewable-energy information and planning, called the Integrated Energy Policy Report.
    Mojave Communities Conservation Collaborative founder Lorrie Steely said in a letter that commissioners should listen to stakeholders and base decisions on sound resource management planning and science to achieve 33 percent renewable-energy production by 2020.
    The group says the concept of distributed generation, or power generation at the site of consumption, is a sound answer to solving California’s need for more electrical power. MC3 also said alternative transmission plans should be explored.
    The hearing, scheduled as Docket 14-IEP-1C, was specifically about the developing Desert Renewable Energy Conservation Plan.
    Steely said several of her associates had difficulties accessing the CEC’s live webcast of the 9 a.m. panel discussions and public comments.
    A WebEx recording of the meeting and related documents are available at www.energy.ca.gov/2014_energypolicy/documents/#08202014.
