In the Solar PEIS Record of Decision, the BLM committed to establishing a solar regional mitigation strategy (SRMS) for each solar energy zone (SEZ). These regional mitigation strategies are expected to simplify and improve the mitigation process for future solar projects in SEZs.
In January 2017, the BLM released the document "Regional Mitigation Strategy for the Colorado Solar Energy Zones – Final Report". This document addresses regional mitigation for the Antonito Southeast SEZ and two other SEZs in Colorado's San Luis Valley. Additional supporting studies were released with the Regional Mitigation Strategy; all the documents are available through the BLM's Renewable Energy Mitigation webpage.
Comments on the Draft Regional Mitigation Strategy for the Colorado SEZs (released in March 2016 and available on the Colorado SRMS Project Website) were considered and incorporated as appropriate into the Final SRMS. Additional information on the Colorado Solar Regional Mitigation Strategy is available through the BLM's Renewable Energy Mitigation webpage.
