Native Americans Vs. Solar Power
Todd Woody at Grist writes that the latest lawsuit, which impacts 6 of the 9 sites, follows a lawsuit last week that addresses one in particular:
"The suit, filed Monday in the U.S. District Court in San Diego, follows a lawsuit brought by the Quechan tribe against the Interior Department for approving Tessera Solar's 709-megawatt Imperial Valley solar power station on the Mexican border.
That project would deploy 28,369 solar dishes-each 40 feet high and 38 feet wide-on some 6,000 acres."
