A prohibition on commercial wind and solar developments near a new Assault Landing Zone at California's Travis Air Force Base may be extended into 2014.
Future wind and solar developments have been put on hold in Solano County's unincorporated areas for research and planning on potential impacts to operations at Travis Air Force Base, according to a report from Vacaville.
The Solano County Board of Supervisors will meet Tuesday and discuss extending the ordinance by 45 days to 10 months and 15 days.
In an earlier decision, the board reviewed possible impacts to the Air Force Base’s radar operations and a new Assault Landing Zone. Concerns that a commercial-scale wind and solar development would affect the wireless communications facility. The turbine height relative to the landing zone was also noted as a concern.
