Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval, Boulder City Mayor Roger Tobler, and Jeff Martin – president and CEO of Sempra Generation – joined other dignitaries in southern Nevada this week to officially dedicate Sempra Generation's Copper Mountain Solar, which Sempra Generation says is the largest photovoltaic solar plant in the U.S.
The 48 MW project is located adjacent to Sempra Generation's 10 MW El Dorado Solar installation in Boulder City, Nev., about 40 miles southeast of Las Vegas. It was completed last December.
The plant incorporates 775,000 thin-film photovoltaic solar panels. The power from Copper Mountain Solar and El Dorado Solar has been sold to Pacific Gas & Electric under separate 20-year contracts.Â
