Two SEZs were identified in California through the 2012 Western Solar Plan: Imperial East SEZ and Riverside East SEZ. The West Chocolate Mountains SEZ was subsequently identified through a planning effort to identify a Renewable Energy Evaluation Area (REEA) in BLM California's El Centro Field Office (which produced the West Chocolate Mountains REEA Final Environmental Impact Statement and Proposed California Desert Conservation Area Plan Amendment), for which a Record of Decision was signed in August 2013.

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.
