Interior Offers 4,800 Acre Lease for Solar Energy

60 day bidding period began last week.

President Biden’s administration has been working with the state of Utah to facilitate the development of renewable energy across its vast flatlands. Last week, the Bureau of Land Management’s Cedar City Field Office started a 60 day bidding period, auctioning off the lease of 4,800 acres for the purpose of deploying renewable energy. The project is estimated to potentially provide electricity to 100,000 homes.

“The BLM designated the Milford Flats South Solar Energy Zone to maximize the ability for solar energy production, while minimizing conflicts and impacts to resources,” said Color Country District Manager Gloria Tibbetts. “The BLM has prioritized the responsible development of renewable energy in the Cedar City Field Office, which already manages lands that generate energy in the forms of wind and geothermal power.” 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For District Manager Tibbetts as she supervises the auction of these lands.
  • That the officials of the Bureau of Land Management as they seek to meet the energy goals of the United States.
  • For President Biden as he continues aiming for zero carbon emissions by 2035.
