Geothermal Impact Mitigation

The Board of Supervisors has created two committees to address the adverse impacts of geothermal development in Lake County. Geothermal resource royalties (AB 1905 funds) can be made available for funding requests to mitigate impacts within these communities. Funds are also made available from Calpine Corporation and the Northern California Power Agency on an annual basis for mitigation and community enhancement projects. Membership on the committees includes the respective member of the Board of Supervisors from either District 1 or 5, residents of each community, representatives of local public agencies, representatives of the geothermal industry, and the Special Districts Administrator.
