Wind and Wave Energy Proposed for Morro Bay

Governor Jerry Brown last week signed into law legislation aimed at expanding renewable energy production, mandating that the state cut in half its use of fossil fuels to produce electricity by the year 2030. Energy companies are looking to achieve that goal using solar, wind and other innovative technologies. Two such projects are now being explored in the Central Coast city of Morro Bay, one using Pacifica Ocean waves and the other employing offshore winds. Pacifica’s Vic Bedoian reports from Fresno.
