The US Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has started accepting public comments related to the environmental assessment of an up to 400-MW solar project to be partly located on public lands in California.
Feedback for the Easley Solar scheme will be gathered for 30 days, until October 15, BLM said on Friday.
The project was put forward by IP Easley, a subsidiary of Intersect Power LLC, which intends to build, operate and maintain a photovoltaic (PV) farm in Riverside County. The complex will cover around 2,700 acres (1,093 ha) of BLM-administered public lands and 990 acres of private lands north of Desert Centre. The area will be developed in line with the Desert Renewable Energy Conservation Plan, which covers 10.8 million acres of public lands in the desert regions of seven California counties and aims to streamline renewable energy development while preserving desert ecosystems.
