Renewable energy projects may soon provide power 

Southern California Edison says the utility has resolved many of the issues that stalled millions of dollars in renewable energy projects that were expected to provide power to facilities in California's national parks and forests.

More than 20 projects have been stalled as federal agencies have tried to come to an agreement with Edison to tie the projects to the state's electrical grid.

These include a solar project at Death Valley National Park, photovoltaic panels at the visitor's center at Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area and a solar power system at the U.S. Forest Service's facility at Mono Lake.

Edison spokesman Steve Picket says they have resolved the impasse with some agencies which should eventually allow about half those projects to move forward.
