and NV Energy
have joined forces on a utility-scale solar power project in Nevada that will supply enough energy to power 75,000 homes during peak hours. A California-based developer, SolarReserve has signed onto a 25-year power purchase agreement for the sale of electricity from its Crescent Dunes Solar Energy Project
. The 100 MW initiative is being overseen by SolarReserve's subsidiary, Tonopah Solar Energy, LLC
, and when completed will produce 480,000 MW hours of renewable energy each year.
The solar energy project is unique for the use of a leading-edge molten salt system technology
from United Technologies Corp.
with advanced storage so that electricity is available during peak demands times whether the sun is shining or not.
