U.S. Bureau of Land Management wants to expand solar energy production

More land in Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Washington, and Wyoming is needed to support the increasing demand for clean energy.

Millions of acres of federal public land West could soon be opened up to solar energy production.

The U.S. Bureau of Land Management says more land in Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Washington, and Wyoming is needed to support the increasing demand for clean energy, and it would meet President Biden’s goal of a completely clean electricity grid by the year 2035.

More than 5 million acres could be added to the plan, which is expected to be finalized by the end of the year.
