A user’s guide for advocates: The Bureau of Land Management’s western solar plan

Tuesday, March 19, 2013

This guide is intended to highlight the most important elements of the Department of Interior’s Bureau of Land Management (BLM’s) decisions in the agency’s western solar plan so that conservationists can effectively use the policy to protect wilderness-quality lands, wildlife habitat and other resources and values by guiding large-scale solar development to low-conflict zones.  We hope that use of the guide will ultimately help advance both conservation and responsible utility-scale solar development on public lands.
