Three solar energy zones (SEZs) were identified in Utah through the Record of Decision (ROD) for the Solar PEIS: Escalante Valley SEZ, Milford Flats South SEZ, and Wah Wah Valley SEZ.

As of April 2015, there were no pending applications or approved projects in Utah.

Additional SEZ information and maps for each Utah SEZ are available on the SEZ-specific Web pages for Escalante Valley, Milford Flats South, and Wah Wah Valley.

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 is developing a solar regional mitigation strategy for three Utah SEZs. Extensive information on the Utah Solar Regional Mitigation Strategy is available on the project website, linked below.
