Stakeholder Committee

The REAT agencies established a Stakeholder Advisory and Independent Science Advisory panel. From 2010 to 2013, this partnership of agencies, stakeholders and scientists held public meetings to develop the baseline and scientific information necessary to create the draft DRECP. The stakeholder committee was established to inform the plan director and REAT agencies and provide a forum for public participation and input. The stakeholders below represent the interests of the counties in the desert region, renewable energy developers, environmental organizations, electric utilities, recreation groups and Native Americans.
