Trump government green-lights biggest-ever US solar power project :

Giant $1bn Gemini development being built by Solar Partners XI in Nevada would provide residential power for entire Greater Last Vegas area


US President Donald Trump’s administration has given the final green light to developer Solar Partners XI plans to build a massive 690MW PV array on public lands in Nevada able to supply electricity for all 260,000 residences in Greater Las Vegas.

When fully operational by 1 December 2023, the $1bn Gemini project will be the country’s largest utility-scale solar array, with the capability to store at least 380MW using long-duration lithium-ion batteries.

State regulators earlier approved a 25-year power purchase agreement between the Gemini project consortium – made up of international developer Quinbrook Infrastructure Partners and California-based Arevia Power – and NV Energy, part of Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway conglomerate and the largest electric utility in Nevada.

NV Energy will pay an average $38.44/MWh for electricity from Gemini, which will be built on 28 sq km (7,000 acres) of federal land in the desert about 53km (33 miles) northeast of Las Vegas. During construction the project could employ up to 900 workers, while supporting another 1,100 local jobs and injecting over $710m into the area economy.
