(Supervisors support the IID)….The Board Tuesday said it was very important to back the IID.
The Imperial Irrigation District recently filed litigation against the California Independent System Operator. The Supervisors said the CAISO has been trying to force themselves on the IID, in an attempt to take their Energy Balancing Authority away. They said it was important the IID balancing authority be protected in the controlled growth of the renewable energy industry in Imperial County, and the ability to export the energy to other areas. The Supervisors commended the IID for their efforts. They agreed to not only send the District a letter of support, but also send a copy to CAISO. Supervisor Mike Kelley said they had to be pro-active in their support of the IID.
