Subject: [CPEO-MEF] ENERGY, ENCROACHMENT: Military warns Mojave Desert wind developers
MOJAVE DESERT: Military wants to limit wind development

Riverside Press-Enterprise (CA)
May 20, 2012

With a PowerPoint presentation and a dot of red light, military officials dropped a bomb on California’s wind energy industry at a recent public meeting.

Using a laser pointer, a Navy official outlined on a map a vast area where the military wants to limit commercial wind development. The pointer swept across the Mojave Desert, skirting around Las Vegas, and edging near San Bernardino County’s High Desert communities and touching the southern Sierra Nevada range.

Within that outline, energy companies have been conducting meteorological tests to develop at least 15 wind farms on public property under the jurisdiction of the U.S. Bureau and Land Management.
