Renewable Energy Partnerships
Other agencies lend their expertise to the development of renewable energy on public lands.
The Western Governors’ Association (WSA) has specific policies on energy and transmission development. View more at http://www.westgov.org/.
The Department of Defense (DOD) manages large tracts of land that have been reserved for military use and purposes. These lands may have potential for renewable energy development, for which the BLM generally administers the underlying land ownership and other uses, such as renewable energy development.
