The State Land Board is actively pursuing renewable energy development on trust lands. Wind, solar, geothermal and other alternative/renewable energy sources are all being studied for their feasibility. Currently, there are four wind energy production leases covering 11,820 acres and twenty nine active renewable energy planning leases covering 70,870 acres.
