Enbridge Inc. and First Solar Inc. have completed Enbridge's 50 MW Silver State North solar project in Clark County, Nev.
U.S. Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar spoke at the project's dedication ceremony, which marked completion of the first utility-scale solar facility built on public lands.
Enbridge acquired Silver State North in March. First Solar developed and constructed the facility using its thin-film photovoltaic modules, and will operate and maintain the project for Enbridge. First Solar expects to recognize revenue from Silver State North in the second quarter of this year.
NV Energy will buy the facility's output under a 25-year power purchase agreement.
