BLM Seeks Comments for Competitive Leasing of Wind Energy on Public Lands

January 17, 2012

The Bureau of Land Management published an Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking to give the public background information about the Bureau's interest in establishing an efficient, competitive process for issuing right-of-way leases for solar and wind energy development on the public lands. The Bureau is seeking input on how best to offer public lands through a nomination and competitive process instead of just by right-of-way application. The 60-day comment period closes on February 27, 2012.
