Solar Regional Mitigation Strategy


The Solar Regional Mitigation Strategy (SRMS) is a landscape approach to managing solar energy zones on public lands that identifies natural, cultural and human resources that could be impacted by potential solar development, as well as ways to mitigate any unavoidable impacts off-site. The BLM is seeking public input on the draft SRMS, which was developed through a public process.
