Comments to BLM on Proposed Rulemaking Regarding Competitive Process for Leasing Public Lands for Solar and Wind Development


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.
