Pending Renewable Energy Applications
The U.S. Department of the Interior and the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) are committed to America’s clean energy future. BLM-California is working to diversify the nation’s energy portfolio through permitting the development of wind, solar, geothermal, and transmission on BLM-managed public lands within the state. Many of these projects are reviewed and processed jointly with the State of California through a unique partnership between the BLM, the California Energy Commission, the California Public Utilities Commission, and other agencies.
BLM California has approved more than a dozen large scale solar and wind projects since 2010, beginning with the first utility scale solar projects ever approved on public lands. More information can be found on our Approved Renewable Energy Projects page.
The projects listed below are those applications that have begun the environmental review process. Each project's website provides more information on the proposal and the permitting process.
