The Public Utilities Commission of Nevada has approved NV Energy’s Integrated Resource Plan, which will bring an additional 1,190 megawatts of new solar renewable energy projects to Nevada and an additional 590 megawatts of energy storage capacity. All three projects will be located in southern Nevada and are expected to be completed and serving customers by January 1, 2024. With the addition of these new projects, NV Energy will also meet the commitment made to customers last year to double its renewable energy.

The three new 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, 20 miles northeast of Las Vegas on the Moapa Band of Paiutes Indian Reservation. It is being developed by EDF Renewables North America, a market leading independent power producer and service provider with over 30 years of expertise in renewable energy.

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 on the Moapa River Indian Reservation about 30 miles north of Las Vegas. It is being developed by 8minute Solar Energy, the largest independent developer of solar PV and storage projects in the United States, with over 15 gigawatts of solar and storage under development in California, the Southwest, Texas, and the Southeast, with more than 2 gigawatts of solar power plants now in operation.

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 25 miles northeast of Las Vegas on approximately 7,100 acres of federally-owned land under the management of the Bureau of Land Management. It is being developed by Quinbrook Infrastructure Partners in collaboration with Arevia Power, who are managing the development phases of the project.
