The Green Wombat reports that the BLM has reversed its recent decision to halt the acceptance of new proposals for solar power projects, and has succumbed to the strong interest in this field. They will continue to accept new proposals while proceeding with their programmatic environmental impact statement (PEIS) preparation. Here is a link to the PDF press release furnished by the Green Wombat, which is curiously hosted by the ANL (Argonne National Laboratory). They also host a site dedicated to this PEIS activity.
This is, indeed, good news.
