Tony Malone knows about renewable energy both as a local expert and from first-hand experience.
“I’ve been off the (Southern California Edison) grid for 10 years,” said Malone, a Victor Valley College instructor who was the featured speaker during last Thursday’s meeting of the Lucerne Valley-Johnson Valley Municipal Advisory Council at the Community Center.
With mandates to increasingly produce more renewable energy via solar and wind power, Lucerne Valley could be severely impacted.
“We are in the center,” Malone said. “This Mojave Desert has a lot of sun.”
