Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement for Solar Energy Development on BLM-administered Public Lands in the Western United States
The primary objective in conducting the PEIS is to amend BLM land use plans in those BLM-administered lands where the potential for commercial solar energy development exists and adopt an agency-wide solar energy development program, including policies and mitigation requirements. The six western states include: Arizona, California, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico and Utah. Within these states, Argonne will conduct specific analyses and public outreach and prepare requisite documentation for approximately 24 solar energy study areas.
