The City of Industry has been working to bring the undeveloped hills that border Los Angeles, Orange and San Bernardino counties a gigantic solar farm.

The project is the subject of an investigation by the Southern California News Group, which finds that the city has spent more than $1 million on the proposed public-private solar farm, mainly without public input.

Larry speaks with the co-author of the investigative pieces about the project.

Guests:

Steve Scauzillo, environment and transportation writer for Southern California News Group and co-author of the article “How Industry could lose a $9M bet on solar farm at Tres Hermanos Ranch;” he has been covering Tres Hermanos for three years

Becky Warren, communications liaison on behalf of the City of Industry
