The California Solar Map is an interactive mapping tool that provides and visualizes data on distributed solar (PV) adoption in the State of California. The data include distributed solar deployment rates by census tract, environmental justice (EJ) group, utility service territory, as well as historical data by year (1998-2017).
For the Energy Storage Peaker Plant Replacement Project, we identify peaker power plants across nine states that may be prime candidates for replacement based on operational and grid characteristics, and whose replacement may yield the greatest health, environment and equity co-benefits. Findings for the first two states in our study Massachusetts and New Jersey are available and in early 2020, we will release additional findings for Arizona, California, Florida, New Mexico, Nevada, New York, and Texas. These findings include state-level summaries, interactive data visualization tools, technical documentation, and a summary of the policy and electricity market landscape.
The Richmond Emissions Inventory mapping tool visualizes emissions data from permitted facilities in Richmond, CA and provides information about sensitive populations in the area (schools, elderly care facilities, child care facilities, and others). It also incorporates environmental justice data from CalEnviroScreen 3.0 as a customizable background layer.
The California Power Map is a mapping tool that provides, compares and visualizes data on California’s fossil fuel and bioenergy power plants. These data include the location of the plants, the demographics of nearby populations, and historical data about operations and greenhouse gas and air pollutant emissions (2010-present) for all California fossil fuel and bioenergy plants 10 megawatts and larger.
This interactive map for California’s Solar on Multifamily Affordable Housing Program displays data on multifamily affordable homes in California to facilitate access to clean energy for low-income tenants.
