The Public Utilities Commission of Nevada (PUCN) has permitted NV Energy’s Integrated Resource Plan, which can convey a further 1.19 GW of latest solar renewable energy tasks to Nevada and a further 590 MW of energy storage capability.
All three tasks might be situated in southern Nevada and are anticipated to be accomplished and serving clients by Jan. 1, 2024.
The three new tasks are:
- Arrow Canyon Solar Project – A 200 MW solar photovoltaic project with a 75 MW/five-hour battery storage system. The project might be situated in Clark County, 20 miles northeast of Las Vegas on the Moapa Band of Paiutes Indian Reservation. It is being developed by EDF Renewables North America.
- Southern Bighorn Solar & Storage Center – A 300 MW solar array that features a 135 MW/four-hour Li-Ion battery energy storage system. The project might be in-built Clark County on the Moapa River Indian Reservation about 30 miles north of Las Vegas. It is being developed by 8minute Solar Energy.
- Gemini Solar + Battery Storage Project – A 690 MW solar photovoltaic array coupled with a 380 MW AC battery storage system. The project might be situated in Clark County, 25 miles northeast of Las Vegas, on roughly 7,100 acres of federally-owned land beneath the administration of the Bureau of Land Management. It is being developed by Quinbrook Infrastructure Partners in collaboration with Arevia Power.
The three new solar energy tasks and three associated energy storage sources will create greater than 3,00zero building interval jobs utilizing union labor.
The tasks might be added to NV Energy’s present portfolio of 57 geothermal, solar, hydro, wind, biomass and supported rooftop solar tasks, each in service and beneath growth.
