Environmental Summit Yields Renewable Power Recommendations

The Second Environmental Summit on the West, held last week in Salt Lake City, Utah, resulted in a detailed list of recommendations for increasing power production from renewable energy resources in the West. The recommendations focus on the use of renewable energy credits as well as ways to increase renewable power production on federal lands. Cosponsored by the Western Governors' Association (WGA) and the White House Council on Environmental Quality, the summit was based on "Enlibra" principles, which aim to develop a consensus approach to environmental issues.
