LANDMARK SOLAR PROJECT REPRESENTS POLICY SHIFT FOR FRONTLINE COMMUNITIES



The Energy, Climate Change & Environmental Justice Committee that I chair, followed by the City Council, approved the Eland Solar Project, which will bring cheap, clean energy to ratepayers and residents in the City of Los Angeles. The benefit of this agreement is more valuable than the affordable solar power it will allow us to generate. It is a step forward towards what our renewable energy policy for Los Angeles should accomplish: reducing gas power usage in frontline communities like those I represent in the Northeast San Fernando Valley. This is consistent with my Green New Deal vision. Environmental Justice should begin first and foremost in the communities most impacted by the burdens of the rest of the city's progress, and this agreement sets the table for more focused efforts in that direction.
