GLRPPR Sector Resource: Harvesting Clean Energy: How California Can Deploy Large-Scale Renewable Energy Projects on Appropriate Farmland

Title:
Harvesting Clean Energy: How California Can Deploy Large-Scale Renewable Energy Projects on Appropriate Farmland

Abstract:
This paper identifies the steps that federal, state, and local leaders should consider to facilitate deployment of utilityscale renewable projects on suitable agricultural lands. Policy-makers will need to: Develop criteria for the most suitable agricultural lands for renewable energy development, including impaired lands with poor agricultural and biological value that possess strong renewable energy generation potential; Expedite the permit process for projects on these impaired lands; and Plan and develop electricity infrastructure upgrades and interconnection processes to accommodate increased energy production from impaired agricultural sites.
