The Department of the Interior in the US has announced an updated roadmap for solar energy development on public lands, expanding the Western Solar Plan to five new states and planning to provide as many as 22 million acres of land for building solar projects.

According to the department, the updated Western Solar Plan would streamline the Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) framework for siting solar energy projects to achieve several outcomes, including supporting current and future national clean energy goals such as supplying carbon pollution-free electricity by 2035, as well as long-term energy security, to name a few.
