SOLAR FARM PROPOSED - 08/26/14 08:56 S.S.

A PROPOSAL TO BUILD ONE OF THE WORLD’S LARGEST SOLAR FARMS IN THE PANOCHE VALLEY (SOUTH OF HOLLISTER) ONLY NEEDS ITS FINAL ENVIRONMENTAL PERMITS, AND SOME NEW INVESTORS TO BANKROLL IT. SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA EDISON HAS ALREADY AGREED TO A 20-YEAR CONTRACT TO PURCHASE ELECTRICITY CREATED THERE. THE STATE’S UTILITY COMPANIES NEED TO FIND NEW SOURCES OF ELECTRICITY BECAUSE A 3 YEAR-OLD LAW REQUIRES THEM TO PROVIDE 33 PERCENT OF THEIR ELECTRICITY FROM RENEWABLE SOURCES (SUCH AS SOLAR AND WIND POWER) BY THE YEAR 2020. THE STATE’S 3 LARGEST UTILITIES ARE CURRENTLY AT ABOUT 21 PERCENT. SEVERAL ENVIRONMENTAL GROUPS SAY THEY WILL CONTINUE TO FIGHT THIS PROJECT, BECAUSE THEY SAY IT THREATENS THE RURAL CHARACTER OF THE AREA, AND WOULD HARM SEVERAL ENDANGERED SPECIES (INCLUDING THE SAN JOAQUIN KIT FOX, AND THE BLUNT-NOSED LEOPARD LIZARD).

LOCAL GRAPE GROWERS RELIEVED - 08/26/14 06:26 S.S.

SOME LOCAL GRAPE GROWERS ARE RELIEVED THAT THEY’LL STILL BE ABLE TO DELIVER THEIR GRAPES TO NAPA AREA WINERIES IN THE COMING WEEKS. ALTHOUGH THE WINERIES SUFFERED DAMAGE (AS A RESULT OF SUNDAY’S EARTHQUAKE NEAR NAPA), AT LEAST SOME WILL BE ABLE TO PROCESS THOSE GRAPES INTO WINE. ONE OF THE VINTNERS SAID "Part of the good news is this started before harvest started,” and “very little harvest had been completed, so very few of the tanks and barrels have 2014 wine in them”. MANY CENTRAL COAST VINEYARDS DO BUSINESS WITH NAPA WINERIES.
