Western Governors’ Association Clean and Diversified Energy Initiative
Solar Task Force Report
The Western Governors’ Association’s Clean and Diversified Energy Advisory Committee (CDEAC) commissioned this task force report in February 2005. Members of the Task Force are listed below. This is one of several task force reports presented to the CDEAC on December 8, 2005 and accepted for further consideration as the CDEAC develops recommendations for the Governors. While this task force report represents the consensus views of the members, it does not represent the adopted policy of WGA or the CDEAC. At their Annual Meeting in June, 2006, Western Governors will consider and adopt a broad range of recommendations for increasing the development of clean and diverse energy, improving the efficient use of energy and ensuring adequate transmission. The CDEAC commends the Task Force for its thorough analysis and thoughtful recommendations.
