One solar energy zone (SEZ) was identified in New Mexico through the Record of Decision (ROD) for the Solar PEIS: the Afton SEZ.
Additional SEZ information and maps for the Afton SEZ are available on the SEZ-specific Web page for Afton.
In the Solar PEIS, the BLM committed to establishing a solar regional mitigation strategy (SRMS) for each SEZ. These regional mitigation strategies are expected to simplify and improve the mitigation process for future solar projects in SEZs.
The BLM is developing a solar regional mitigation strategy for the Afton SEZ in New Mexico. Extensive information on the Afton Solar Regional Mitigation Strategy is available on the project website, linked below.
