Review of Proposed Renewable Energy Plan Started

The DRECP will identify conservation zones and energy zones.  It will be developed in order to expedite permitting of jurisdictional renewable energy facilities.  It will provide for the conservation and management of identified species in the California desert through the establishment of conservation zones and energy zones.

The goal of the DRECP is to provide for the conservation and management of identified species.  The plan will facilitate the implementation of measures that will contribute to the recovery of these species.

BLM, as the lead agency under the National Environmental Policy Act, will prepare an environmental impact statement (EIS) to analyze the site-specific impacts of the proposed plan and a proposed amendment to the California Desert Conservation Area Plan.

Publication of the NOI initiates a public scoping period of 30 days, ending December 21, 2009.  During the scoping period, BLM solicits public comment on issues, concerns, potential impacts, alternatives, and mitigation measures that should be considered in the analysis of the proposed action.  A joint agency public scoping meeting will be held and details will be announced shortly.  BLM will use the public scoping comments received to prepare the draft environmental documents for future public review.
