(Victor Valley)– From Oak Hills to Apple Valley and Helendale to Newberry Springs, renewable energy projects can impact neighborhoods across the High Desert. So San Bernardino County is creating a plan for renewable energy and wants to hear your thoughts, according to 1st District Supervisor Robert Lovingood. A new website, www.SPARCForum.org, will allow anyone to read what others are saying and share your own ideas.
This month, the County is holding the first round of workshops where you can learn more about renewable energy. Participants will be asked to identify and prioritize strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats regarding future renewable energy projects. Find the workshop closest to you:
