The scuttlebutt is that Sierra Club is in talks with a certain large private landowner and major water user in the San Joaquin Valley regarding solar facilities instead of farming the arid, desert-like land with Delta water on the Western edge of the Valley. This is great news, a potential game changer if correctly worked. This is one of those very few places where I would even go so far as to suggest a win-win, with possible air quality improvements, more permanent Valley jobs, less water usage, etc., etc.
I will post more about this as I learn about it...
