As a senior executive in the renewable energy field, I support the efforts of the Livermore Community. While all agree that a transition from fossil fuel power sources to low-cost renewable energy sources is critical, it must be done with a careful consideration of all stakeholders. The solar generation plant does not have to be placed on farmland. In fact, it does not even have to be placed on land at all. The most recent advances in floating solar as well as the significant advantages to water conservation combine with a favorable cost comparison to result in alternatives that clearly need to be considered. I suggest that Alameda County require a full analysis of alternative sites, to include those on water surfaces, for the objective generation proposed by the Aramis project.
