Conservation groups have reached an agreement with the First Solar, Inc. to provide additional conservation protections to wild lands and wildlife as part of construction of the California Flats Solar Project, a proposed 280-megawatt solar energy project in Monterey and San Luis Obispo counties.
“First Solar and the conservation organizations worked constructively in reaching an agreement that provides significant new renewable power to California while protecting the environment — exactly the type of result encouraged by the Governor,” said Ken Alex, senior policy advisor to Gov. Jerry Brown and the director of the Governor’s Office of Planning and Research.
