Bay Area Bountiful

arrayIn keeping with Sonoma County's recent history as a hotbed of renewable energy innovation and expansion, two new projects, each using a different renewable source, are in the news today.

Geyserville Turbine_smallThe planned turbine project, as seen in the rendering at left, is yet another instance of Sonoma County's efforts to expand its use of renewable power sources, says Supervisor Mike McGuire, with more on the way.

The Water Agency has received a grant to develop a series of alternative energy projects around the county, adds McGuire, and adding some wind power at the Geyserville sewer plant is part of that grant.

That public meeting about the turbine project will be Thursday evening at 6:30 in the Geyserville Educational Park.
