Obama Administration Announces New Developments in Solar Energy

by Green Jobs Ready on October 28, 2011

Recent developments in the state of the green jobs market and economy came on Thursday this week when the Obama administration made known further plans to cultivate growth in various sectors of the green economy, in particular for the furthering of efforts in the area of solar energy.

According to the Los Angeles Times, the International Business Times, and other publications, the Bureau of Land Management and the presidential administration aim to encourage the development of more than 20 million acres of the Mojave desert in southern California for use as a solar resource.

In keeping with the large scale effort to expand the range and scope of areas which have been targeted as fruitful for the development of solar energy facilities, 17 key zones have been indicated across six states in the western continental United States.

According to the Los Angeles Times, these zones are ripe for new green energy ventures that will provide more green jobs because of their lack of “major environmental or cultural conflicts.”

The publication also states that the Bureau of Land Management, which is largely responsible for the composition and proofreading of the announced plans to expand the green economy, has invested significantly in those processes. The LA Times cites Ken Salazar, U.S. Interior Secretary, as saying that the Bureau is attempting to expedite the process of solar energy development by directing firms to parcels of land that have already been environmentally certified.
