Recording Available: Local Government Renewable Energy Permitting Process 

September 14, 2023

The California State Association of Counties (CSAC), the Rural County Representatives of California (RCRC), and the League of California Cities (Cal Cities) hosted the Local Government Renewable Energy Permitting Process webinar on Wednesday, August 30th. The webinar provided local government officials, planners, and energy generation and storage developers with valuable insights into the permitting processes for renewable energy projects, including battery storage.

The California Energy Commission provided an overview of SB 100 Renewable Energy Infrastructure Needs and AB 205 Opt-In Renewable Energy Permitting Process, followed by a brief presentation on hydrogen energy production by the University of California Division of Agriculture and Natural Resources.  Attendees heard from local planning directors and energy developers who shared their experiences, best practices, and advice for other local governments and project applicants.

This webinar was a unique opportunity for local government officials, planners, and energy developers to gain valuable knowledge and insights into the renewable energy permitting process.

A recording of the webinar is now available here.
