Welcome to the Morongo Basin Conservation Association. MBCA advocates for the healthy desert environment that nurtures the region's rural character, cultural wealth and economic well-being. If you share that vision, join us.
While not directly supporting the Eagle Mountain hydropower and storage project, the passage of SB 772 would require California to support projects that would store energy as part of the state's plan to increase renewable energy production. The increasing amount of solar and wind energy is more than can be used as it is produced, so storage becomes more important to continue reducing non-renewable energy consumption. This in-depth article in the Los Angeles Times provides perspective from both industry and environmental perspectives.
