EDF Renewables North America has signed a 22-year power purchase agreement (PPA) with NV Energy for the supply of electricity from the future Chuckwalla solar farm in the US state of Nevada. The 200MW project, which will be integrated with a 180MW four-hour battery storage system, will be developed, built, and operated by EDF Renewables.
Chuckwalla is located 56km northeast of Las Vegas in Clark County on the Moapa Band of Paiute Indians Reservation.
The project will employ approximately 300 people during the construction period. Upon entry into service by the end of 2023, the plant will provide the annual electricity needs to 45,000 average Nevada homes. The storage system at Chuckwalla will offer grid stability by creating a balance between electricity generation and demand.Source : https://renews.biz/62155/edf-makes-200mw-solar-power-play-in-nevada/
