Regulators pave the way for solar-storage projects to change coal plant in Nevada
- Regulators in Nevada have actually led the way for 2 solar-storage hybrid projects to change a legacy coal nuclear power plant in the US state, authorizing their sale to utility NV Energy.
Having actually formerly authorized contracts with programmer Primergy to obtain the properties, which will incorporate 600MW of solar PV with 480MW of battery energy storage, the offer was officially approved by the Public Utilities Commission of Nevada.
A Constructed Transfer Agreement has actually now been participated in by Primergy and also NV Energy, which will see the Iron Point as well as Hot Pot Solar projects, which will certainly have 250MWac and 350MWac of solar creating capacity respectively, transfer right into NV Energy's possession upon their completion.
Work is anticipated to start in H2 2022.
Primergy is already dealing with among the United States' largest solar-storage hybrid projects in Nevada, the Gemini project (a making of which is visualized over) which is to incorporate 690MWac of solar PV capacity with 380MW/ 1.4 GWh of energy storage.
Primergy broke ground on that specific project in January last year.
