DENVER (AP) The federal Bureau of Land Management's plan to auction solar-energy rights on public lands in Colorado is off to a rocky start after no bidders showed up for the first auction.

Three parcels covering 3,700 acres in the San Luis Valley were offered on Thursday, and five solar developers had expressed interest in the land.

According to the Denver Post, federal officials are now trying to determine why there were no bids.
