Solar energy right-of-way (ROW) authorizations (grants and leases) may be assigned or transferred with BLM approval.
The ROW authorization may be assigned (i.e., transfer of interest) consistent with the provisions of the regulations (43 CFR 2807.21). However, all assignments shall be approved by the BLM authorized officer, and the qualifications of all assignees must comply with 43 CFR 2803.10 and the due diligence requirements of the regulations (43 CFR 2807.21(d)(2)). The assignment shall not interfere with BLM’s enforcement of the terms and conditions of the authorization or management of the associated public lands. Transfers other than assignments must be approved by the BLM and may result in requirements for submittal of a new application or a Notice of Termination.
