EPA Launches California Map to Highlight Land Best Used for Green Energy Sources
The EPA’s online map, called Renewable Energy Siting Tool, highlights areas prime for large- and small-scale renewable energy projects on California land that is contaminated or degraded. There are about 11,000 venues screened on the map, including brownfields, old mines, and Superfund sites.
To see some different maps of California’s degraded land and locations ideal for solar, wind, geothermal, and hydropower installations, take a look here.
