NV Energy issued a request for proposals to design, engineer, procure, deliver and install a 350-kilowatt community based solar project at Mojave High School, located in North Las Vegas, NV. This project will be the first of several community-based solar resource projects developed as part of the Expanded Solar Access Program, which was established by Assembly Bill 465 during the 2018 Nevada Legislative Session. This project will make renewable energy available and save costs.
Doug Cannon, President, and Chief Executive Officer, NV Energy, said: “We appreciate the leadership of Assemblywoman Daniele Monroe Moreno and Senator Chris Brooks and the work of our state legislature to establish energy policies that help us bring the economic benefits of solar energy directly to low-income communities. Community-based solar projects like the one we are developing at Mojave High School will create local jobs and provide educational opportunities for the students in their own communities. This effort is about making sure every Nevadan receives benefits from the renewable energy resources we have in this state.”
Projects will be competitively evaluated, on several factors, including best value to NV Energy customers and other pricing and non-pricing criteria. Bids are due by 4 PM on 29th March 2021. The final project must be approved by the Public Utilities Commission of Nevada.
