On Feb. 27, 2012, SEIA filed comments in response to BLM's Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking which would institute a competitive process for solar and wind development on public lands. SEIA opposes competitive bidding because it would likely increase the costs of developing utility-scale solar projects on public lands, thereby decreasing the number of solar power plants that are built. SEIA is, however, supportive of a leasing system for solar, rather than the current right-of-way system.
