NextEra Energy Resources LLC has begun commercial operation of its 20 MW Mountain View solar energy project near Las Vegas. NextEra's subsidiary, Mountain View Solar LLC, is operating the facility. All of the power generated by the Mountain View solar plant is being provided to NV Energy customers under a long-term power purchase agreement.
The facility consists of approximately 84,000 photovoltaic modules installed on ground-mounted arrays. Development on the Mountain View solar project began in 2010. Initial project construction started in early June 2013.
‘We are proud to be a part of an initiative that not only supports NV Energy's renewable energy supply, but has also helped to power Clark County's local economy,’ says Armando Pimentel, NextEra Energy's president and CEO.
