NV Energy announced the procurement of nearly 1,200 megawatts of new solar photovoltaic generation to be built in Nevada, along with 590 megawatts of battery storage.
NV Energy will seek approval of the projects as part of its integrated resource plan
Each of the three announced projects are expected to be completed and serving customers by the end of 2023
The projects are:
• Arrow Canyon Solar Project: 200 megawatt solar photovoltaic project with a 75 megawatt – 5 hour battery storage system. The project will be located in Clark County, NV and is being developed by EDF Renewables North America
• Southern Bighorn Solar & Storage Center: 300 megawatt solar array that includes a 135 megawatt - 4 hour Li-Ion battery energy storage system. The project will be built in Clark County, NV and is being developed by 8minute Solar Energy
• Gemini Solar + Battery Storage Project: 690 megawatt solar photovoltaic array coupled with a 380 megawatt AC battery storage system. The project will be located in Clark County, NV and is being developed by Quinbrook Infrastructure Partners in collaboration with Arevia Power, who are managing the development phases of the project. The PPA is for 25 years
Quinbrook stated, "The Gemini Solar + Battery Storage Project is believed to be the largest solar-powered battery storage system in the world announced to date."
