SUPERVISORS DENY APPEAL FOR APPLE VALLEY SOLAR FARM

SUPERVISORS DENY APPEAL FOR APPLE VALLEY SOLAR FARM

County supervisors voted to uphold the San Bernardino County Planning Commission’s denial of a conditional use permit for a solar farm in rural Apple Valley. The proposed 3-megawatt photovoltaic solar farm went down on a 3-2 vote, with Supervisors Robert Lovingood, James Ramos and Josie Gonzales voting against the project. “Renewable energy projects must be carefully and thoughtfully located,” Lovingood said in a written statement. “This is not the right location for this project.” Planning commissioners earlier found the 23-acre project did not meet Apple Valley’s code requirements, and the county’s Development Code defers to incorporated municipalities’ codes when considering projects in their spheres of influence.
