Nevada

Five SEZs were identified in Nevada through the Record of Decision (ROD) for the Solar PEIS: Amargosa Valley SEZ, Dry Lake SEZ, Dry Lake Valley North SEZ, Gold Point SEZ, and Millers SEZ.

As of April 2015, there were eleven pending applications and four approved projects in Nevada.

Additional SEZ information and maps for each Nevada SEZ are available on the SEZ-specific Web pages for Amargosa Valley, Dry Lake, Dry Lake Valley North, Gold Point, and Millers.

Solar Regional Mitigation Strategy

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 has developed solar regional mitigation strategies for the Dry Lake and Dry Lake Valley North solar energy zones (SEZs) in Nevada.

The Dry Lake Solar Regional Mitigation Strategy is available on the Dry Lake SEZ Mitigation Strategy page.

The Dry Lake Valley North Solar Regional Mitigation Strategy is available on the Dry Lake Valley North SEZ Mitigation Strategy page.
