Are We On Our Way to Smarter Solar?
A proposed solar energy project in a remote part of the California desert has been called off. This is great news for the kit foxes, desert bighorn sheep, joshua trees, and other species that depend on the desert landscape. It is a victory for those who advocate developing solar without developing our remaining natural landscapes. But the issue at large remains unresolved- where to put the solar power site. Perhaps we can push companies proposing large-scale operations to explore less destructive options for developing renewable energy, like roof-top solar and solar road panels.
