Plans approved for construction of solar farms on U.S. federal land
For the first time, federal land managers are allowing the construction of two solar installations on public land to power hundreds of thousands of homes with renewable energy.
The projects were unveiled by U.S. Interior Secretary Ken Salazar and California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger.
One includes a square mile (2.6 square kilometres) of solar panels near Victorville in inland Southern California, and the other covers about 10 square miles (26 square kilometres) in the remote Imperial Valley. The announcement comes about five years after solar developers began asking the U.S. Bureau of Land Management for rights to develop solar plants on federally owned land across the Southwest.
