The Department of the Interior's Inspector General conducted a review of BLM's management of land leased for solar and wind projects. The findings of the IG highlighted significant failures of the Bureau related to poor monitoring of projects. Nationally, BLM has more than 30,000 acres currently under wind ROW and more than 31,000 acres under solar ROW. In addition, BLM has identified almost 21 million acres of public lands with wind energy development potential, and more than 20 million acres that have the potential for solar energy development.
