Renewable Energy Activities

The Renewable Energy Program is tasked with assisting in the development and implementation of the Desert Renewable Energy Conservation Plan (DRECP). Together with federal agencies, CDFW staff is working to ensure that the state is able to expedite siting and permitting of renewable energy projects that will assist in achieving greenhouse gas reduction targets set forth in Assembly Bill 32 while minimizing the impacts to natural resources and further mitigating the impacts of climate change.
