Renewable Energy Projects Popping Up Near Apple Valley

According to the Victorville Daily Press, May 30, 2015, the sPower Bowman Solar project, if approved, would join eight others on unincorporated county land not under municipal or Bureau of Land Management administration. The proposed sPower-filed project is intended to occupy 35 acres and generate 3 megawatts of electricity by photovoltaic solar power generation. The project near Bowman Road is now planned to be developed by 320 Highway 18 AV LLC/The Lansing Companies of San Diego. Eight renewable-energy projects, all solarpowered generating facilities, are completed — three near Twentynine Palms, two in the area of Apple Valley, and one each near El Mirage, Joshua Tree and Newberry Springs. They cover a total of 432.5 acres and together are capable of generating 51 megawatts of electricity. Another 15 projects have been conditionally approved — near Apple Valley, Daggett, Helendale, Kramer Junction, Landers, Newberry Springs, Phelan and Victorville.
