In the waning days of 2010, the U.S. Department of the Interior (DOI), U.S. Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) jointly prepared and released the “Draft Solar Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement for Solar Energy Development in Six Southwestern States” (PEIS). The BLM is considering a new solar energy program to facilitate the development of utility-scale solar energy facilities on BLM-administered land in Arizona, California, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, and Utah by identifying those areas best suited for utility-scale solar energy production.
