NV Energy is planning to supply electricity from a 100MW solar project in Boulder City in Nevada.

The US company filed a request with the Public Utilities Commission (PUC) of Nevada to approve the project in the Eldorado Valley.

If approved, the project will supply electricity through a 25-year power purchase agreement signed with Techren Solar from the fourth quarter of 2018.

NV Energy requested that the Nevada PUC make a decision on the project by the end of the year.

NV Energy senior vice president of energy supply Kevin Geraghty said that the selection criteria for the solar project was primarily based on the best value to NV Energy customers, but also factored in economic and job benefits to Nevada.

“At an average cost of energy for the life of the project at approximately four cents per kWh, this is one of the lowest-cost solar projects in the nation,” he said. 

“And, we are very pleased with the fact that Techren has already signed a work-site agreement with local unions 357 and 396 of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers,” he added.
