NV Energy and NextLight Renewable Power LLC have signed a 25-year contract for the purchase and sale of energy to be produced at NextLight's 50 MW Silver State solar photovoltaic facility near Primm, Nev.
Silver State Solar Power is located on Bureau of Land Management land, and will interconnect at NV Energy's Bighorn substation adjacent to the project site. The project will use solar photovoltaic technology. Slated to commence construction as early as December, the project will employ up to 230 workers during construction and is targeted for initial energy deliveries in May 2011.
