Two SEZs were identified in California through the Record of Decision (ROD) for the Solar PEIS: Imperial East SEZ and Riverside East SEZ.

A planning effort to identify a Renewable Energy Evaluation Area (REEA) in BLM California’s El Centro Field Office resulted in the Record of Decision (ROD) for the West Chocolate Mountains REEA Final Environmental Impact Statement and Proposed California Desert Conservation Area Plan Amendment, which was signed in August 2013. This ROD identified an additional SEZ: the West Chocolate Mountains SEZ in southern California.

As of November 2018, there were two pending applications and fourteen approved projects in California.

Additional SEZ information and maps for each California SEZ are available on the SEZ-specific Web pages for Imperial East, Riverside East, and West Chocolate Mountains.
