Solar plus storage built in Nevada.

Location: Nevada, U.S.A.


8minute Solar Energy announced that it has been selected to develop the largest solar plus storage project ever built in Nevada, and one of the largest in the world, measuring in at a whopping 475 megawatts (MW) for the solar array and 540 megawatt-hours (MWh) for the battery storage system. The Southern Bighorn Solar & Storage Center will be developed between 8minute Solar Energy, the largest solar and storage developer in the United States, NV Energy, and the Moapa Band of Paiutes. Set to be built in Clark County on the Moapa River Indian Reservation about 30 miles north of Las Vegas, the Southern Bighorn will not only be the largest solar plus storage center in Nevada but will also be the largest solar plus storage center built on tribal land in the United States to date.

Southern Bighorn will be built on non-agricultural land near a retired coal plant and will use environmentally-sensitive construction. Upon completion, it will be the fourth solar project developed on the Moapa River Indian Reservation and generate enough electricity for the equivalent of 180,000 homes, while reducing carbon emissions by more than 600,000 metric tons annually. Southern Bighorn requires final approval by the Public Utilities Commission of Nevada before construction can commence, but construction is currently expected to begin in mid-2022, and be operational by the end of 2023.
