The California Energy Commission has set another hearing for the Palen Solar Power Project in Blythe – to take place July 28-31. Although the CEC recommended denying the permit for this project last winter, based on impacts to avian fauna and cultural resources, the entire case has been reopened at the request of Brightsource.
It’s important to voice your concerns at these hearings, as they will take public comments.

DPC would like to join Anza-Borrego Foundation in thanking you for your support and votes during the CBS Eco Ambassadors Campaign.
Every vote made a difference and the contest did a lot to raise awareness about Camp Borrego, which DPC has long supported.

Many of you may already know that Desert Protective Council is a huge supporter of Camp Borrego, Anza-Borrego Foundation’s 5th Grade Environmental Education Program. But here is an easy way that you can lend your support at well.
Anza-Borrego Foundation (ABF) has been nominated as one of eight Eco Ambassadors through CBS 8 here in San Diego. This honor brings with it a voting campaign and a chance to win a $25,000 grant – which would go entirely to Camp Borrego, should ABF win.
