Utility secures approval for three large solar-plus-storage projects in Nevada

Renewables Now:

Nevada utility NV Energy on Wednesday said it had secured approval from the Public Utilities Commission of Nevada (PUCN) for 1.19 GW of new solar power projects and 590 MW of energy storage capacity in Nevada.

The additional solar capacity will come from three projects located in Clark County, southern Nevada, which are scheduled to be operational by January 2024.

The latest projects, whose potential inclusion in NV Energy’s portfolio was first announced in June, will help the company reach its goal of doubling its renewable energy capacity. Since April, energy providers in Nevada are required by law to comply with a 50% renewable energy portfolio standard by 2030.

The selected projects include the 200-MW Arrow Canyon solar scheme, which is being developed by EDF Renewables North America and has 75 MW of battery storage. A project being developed by 8minute Solar Energy will add 300 MW of solar power with 135 MW of battery storage within the Southern Bighorn Solar & Storage Centre, while the largest plan includes a 690-MW solar farm with 380 MW of energy storage capacity. Known as the Gemini solar + battery storage project, it is being developed by Quinbrook Infrastructure Partners and Arevia Power.

At present, NV Energy has 57 geothermal, solar, hydro, wind, biomass and supported rooftop solar projects, both operational and under development, in its portfolio.
