About 1,400 square miles of public land could be leased by the federal government for solar development, which would effectively double U.S. installed capacity. The Bureau of Land Management took a first step, approving 465 MW solar, 400 MW storage in California across two projects.
The facility will include a battery recycling building, an office building with laboratories, and a finished goods warehouse.
Local opposition forced the action, but the same developers are moving ahead with a nearby $1 billion solar-plus-storage project.
