The project is being supported by a Power Purchase Agreement with the Vermont Renewable Energy Program (VEPP), a not-for-profit Vermont corporation that administers two of Vermont's renewable energy programs under contract with the Vermont Public Utility Commission. The plants will be installed in southern Nevada's Clark County as part of projects that won a competitive solicitation in the autumn of 2018.
In April, Nevada passed a law requiring utilities to source 50 percent of their power from renewable sources by 2030.

It is being developed by EDF Renewables North America.More news: Park Bo-gum denies involvement in Song-Song couple’s divorce
The projects include a 690 MW array with a 380 MW battery storage system on federal land near Las Vegas. Known as the Gemini solar + battery storage project, it is being developed by Quinbrook Infrastructure Partners and Arevia Power.
Hydroelectric dams, solar panels and wind turbines generated nearly 68.5 million megawatt-hours of power in April, eclipsing the 60 million that coal produced that month, Energy Information Administration data released late Tuesday show. The data is collected from different sources allied to the global Residential Solar Energy Storage market and the research team meticulously analyze the gathered data with the help of various analytical tools and present their opinion based on analysis and calculations.
The project will be located on federally-owned land under the management of the Bureau of Land Management.More news: Border bill exposes Dems' rift over limits of fighting Trump
