Document Description
The County of Inyo is proposing to update its General Plan to include policies for solar energy development within the County. The proposed Renewable Energy General Plan Amendment (REGPA) involves identifying new and modified General Plan goals, policies, and implementation measures, including Solar Energy Development Areas (SEDA), based on the results of an Opportunities and Constraints Technical Study (OCTS); a background report (Inyo County 2013); work completed in 2011; and, input from stakeholders and the public. From this foundation of work and outreach, eight proposed SEDAs have been identified and will be analyzed in the program environmental impact report.
