The Colorado River Indian Tribes Sues U.S. Department of the Interior and Bureau of Land Management to Block Construction of Blythe Solar Project
Dec 19 14
The Colorado River Indian Tribes accused regulators of violating a handful of laws when they approved NextEra Energy Inc.'s Blythe solar project in Riverside County, Calif. The 485-MW project is located on more than 4,000 acres of land overseen by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management. A Native American tribe in California accused regulators of violating a handful of laws when they approved NextEra Energy Inc.'s Blythe solar project on more than 4,000 acres of land overseen by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management. The Colorado River Indian Tribes, or CRIT, is suing the U.S. Department of the Interior and BLM over the 485-MW Blythe project in Riverside County, Calif., saying the land where the facility is being built is crisscrossed by trails the tribe's ancestors used and contains important artifacts. The suit, filed Dec. 4 in U.S. District Court for the Central District of California, comes as solar developers hustle to complete projects before the federal investment tax credit expires in its current form at the end of 2016. The deadline is already putting pressure on developers of utility-scale projects such as Blythe, solar advocates say. In approving the project, the government violated the National Historic Preservation Act, the National Environmental Policy Act and the Federal Lands Policy and Management Act, the tribe said, in part for allegedly failing to conduct government-to-government consultations with the tribe and for allowing the developer to move forward before cultural-resource plans were in place. The tribe asked the court to require the bureau to rescind its right-of-way grant and bar future ground-disturbing activities within the project area. The Blythe project, which is being developed by NextEra subsidiary NextEra Energy Resources LLC, is due online in December 2016 and is estimated to cost more than $1.6 billion.
